Neighbors and Peacemakers is having a Circle of Dreams. It will be held on Saturday, April 8, 2006 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Sister Cities Bridge (between the Clarion Hotel and First Federal Plaza on East Main Street). It is in celebration and memory of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King. The event is free and is open to the public.

A Circle of Dreams will bring together people representing the diversity of the community of Monroe. We invite everyone to celebrate their determination to become the "beloved community, " the goal of Dr. King who was assassinated on April 4, 1968. On April 8, 1968, Mrs. King, along with her three oldest children, Yolanda, Martin and Dexter led a march in Memphis, Tennessee which Dr. King was scheduled to lead. This event is in commemoration of that march that took place 38 years ago.

-this is something we were invovled in preliminary organizing for last spring, I think it would be wonderful if everyone could mark it on there calenders.
