Emanuel County Event Planning Committee announces cancellation of annual MLK Jr. commemoration service and parade


To whom it may concern:
I, Al Huston, wish to express my sincere gratitude for all your previous participation in the recognition and celebration of a great civil rights leader’s life and legacy. The events that honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. are a highlight of the Emanuel County community and are greatly supported by our elected officials and the community at large. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the celebration for the commemoration service and parade for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., scheduled Jan. 18 and Jan. 19, 2021, has been cancelled.
The Emanuel County Planning Committee wants to make sure the community remains safe during this time and season. We are regrettably sorry that these events cannot take place as usual. We look forward to a safer environment next year for the festivities to take place.
Thank you in advance for your understanding. We hope everyone has a happy and prosperous New Year, on behalf of the Emanuel County Event Planning Committee.

Respectfully yours,

Al Huston, president chairman
Tim Phillips, vice president/coordinator
David Smith, vice president/line up chairman
Harold Scott, vice president/coordinator
Chris Stanford, vice president/coordinator
