On Monday, January 15, 2018, come together for the 19th annual observance of Martin Luther King Jr Day in West Chester and Liberty Townships. We will begin with a March for Unity in Our Community which will start at the Clocktower at The Square at Union Centre, 9285 Centre Pointe Drive, West Chester, at 10:30 a.m. The March will culminate at the Lakota West High School auditorium for a program beginning at 11:15 a.m., which will be followed by a free lunch for all participants at 12:30 p.m. in the cafeteria.
A community choir is forming to help lead singing during the March and program.

Why We March Today
Not because we must, but because we may.
Not as a protest to change what is not fair, but as a celebration of the positives for which we are thankful.
We are members of a community, coming together peacefully to demonstrate that ours is a town that strives toward racial reconciliation, and hopes to express that goal symbolically in a tangible way.
