On Monday, January 19, 2009, volunteers across the nation honored the legacy of Civil Rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. During his lifetime, Dr. King encouraged people to work together in addressing community issues. The Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach’s Keystone Club have committed that last two years to transforming the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday as day “on”, as apposed to a day “off”, in order strengthen our community and honor the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The King Day of Service was initiated by Congress in 1994 as a nationwide effort to turn the federal holiday honoring Dr. King into a day of community service that helps solve social problems.
