We will have Monday, January 17th, 2022 off. Do you know why? It is a day to honor Martin Luther King Jr. He brought about change in our world in the early 1900’s that changed the course of all mankind. He fought for civil rights, which is the belief that all individuals should have equal respect and opportunities. While we may be using that day off to relax or to spend time with friends or family, take a moment to think about a way you can build your community and make it a better place. There is always room for improvement, always a way to strengthen the relationships around us. If we all work together, we can build an even stronger community.
