In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I planned to volunteer at Jones Point Park in Alexandria, Virginia with Shannon and the rest of my friends at Hoops & High Heels Inc. They coordinated an event with the Potomac Conservancy to clean up the area under the bridge. I was ready to go, but the Potomac Conservancy canceled on us. I'm sure Hoops & High Heels still would've had the event rain or shine, but at least they were able to move it to a different date. We'll just have to wait until March.
To honor and celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day, people volunteer and join activities in their community. It's good to contribute. So, as most of us take the day off, let's also remember to make MLK Day a day on (for service).

Happy MLK Day!
