Inspiring Service

Posted on Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

We invite you to make MLK Day a day of service—”a day ON, not a day off.”     

In the spirit of service, consider taking the day off on Monday, January 16th and spending your time serving others.  If you would like ideas of how to get involved, contact the Volunteer Center ahead of time and we will help you find a good fit!  Cap the day off in the Community Room at the Fairfield Public Library at 7 pm where we cordially invite you to join us as we hear from Fairfield resident Patti Miller who was a civil rights activist who worked with Dr. King in the Freedom Summer of 1964 and went on to work with Dr. King as part of the Project to End Slums in Chicago. Now she is “Keeping History Alive” with inspiring presentations of her unique and personal story.

Her presentation challenges us all to take action today to create a more just and diversified society, while creating the history of tomorrow.  National Days of Service like this one are important reminders to get involved and serve to rally people together to make a difference…but what we hope they do most of all is to inspire ongoing service throughout the year.

*Admission to the evening’s events will be a non-perishable food donation to help stock the new food pantry at New Life Community Church in Fairfield.
