MLK Celebration Moves to Farris Center

The location of the statewide celebration of the life of Dr.Martin Luther King has been moved to the Farris Center due to mechanical problems with the stage lift at Reynolds Performance Hall.

“A Day of Service” celebration will begin Monday, Jan. 16 at noon.

The Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission is partnering with the UCA, Hendrix College, Central Baptist College, Conway public schools, the City of Conway, Conway Corporation, Conway Regional Health System and State Rep. Linda Tyler on the event.

Several activities are planned after the program including a meal for the less fortunate in the Farris Center. Personal hygiene kits will be distributed along with free job counseling and health screenings will be provided.
