14th Annual MLK Celebration & Southern Potluck

Monday, January 16, 2017 - 5:30 pm: Join the Silverton People For Peace and the Silverton Grange as we honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, for our 14th Annual Evening of Remembrance, Song and Potluck! If you want to participate, just show up and eat, sing and chat. Free for all, and all are welcome!

Starting with just a few volunteers in 2003, The Silverton People For Peace initiated this January tradition of honoring Dr. King as a way to highlight his powerful messages and the examples he left for us to follow. After several years, The Silverton Grange decided to partner with us, and to provide us with a regular venue.

Following a Social Hour & Potluck, with Guest speaker Andrea Williams, Executive Director of Causa – Oregon, a Latino immigrant rights organization. In the tradition of the holiday as one of community service, donations of blankets, coats, hats, gloves and canned goods to SACA are encouraged.

Past celebrations have included relevant film showings, poetry and select readings from Dr. King and others involved in the social justice movement. We are proud to continue this tradition into a new decade, and invite one and all to join us in celebrating the life and times of one of this country and this planet’s most endearing citizens. Doors open at 5:00 for a social hour, with potluck dinner & program around 6:30ish. The Silverton Grange Hall is located at 201 Division St., Silverton. From Main & Water, head south 1.7 miles on Water St. towards the Falls, and turn left on Division St. after the large green Grange Hall sign.
