In this the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, a celebration of the life of Martin Luther King Jr. will be held Sunday, Jan. 19, at 3 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church. Barbara McRae, newly elected alderman and acclaimed historian and author, is the featured speaker. Music will be provided by the Western Carolina Inspirational Choir. Mozart Moliere will emcee the program.
