The Emanuel County Event Planning Committee has announced the cancellation of the 2021 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade and commemoration services.
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.
Al Huston, president chairman
