Join the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration
Monday January 17th
Martin Luther King Jr. Day is Monday January 17th. Meet at the Stillwater Public Library at 6pm. Then march from the Stillwater Public Library to Mt. Zion Baptist Church where the program with speaker Dr. Zola Drain and various choirs will begin at 7pm. Those who are unable to march can go directly to Mt. Zion Baptist Church. Join your fellow Payne County Democrats in celebrating a great man of peace and equality!
Now, I say to you today my friends, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: – ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’
