City of Spokane elected officials and employees will take part in the annual Unity March and other events in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 15. We invite others to join us in this celebration and in other events in Spokane in honor of this important day.
Here are details for a number of MLK Day events in the Spokane area:
Citizens throughout Spokane and the nation are committed to making Martin Luther King Jr. Day a day of service to the community—“A Day On, Not a Day Off.” To sign up for volunteer and service opportunities, go to www.volunteerspokane.org.
Students at Eastern Washington University, Gonzaga University, Washington State University Spokane, and Whitworth University should check their school web sites. Another option is to go to www.mlkday.gov for information on how you can plan a service project or get involved.
Spokane City Hall, Spokane Municipal Court, and Spokane Public Library branches are closed on Monday, Jan. 15, in recognition of MLK Day. City parking meters don’t have to be plugged on that day.
