Saturday, Jan. 12: Takoma Park residents cleaned up trash and invasive species in Takoma Woods. It was joint effort between Friends of Sligo and volunteers taking part in Martin Luther King Service Day. It was in commemoration of Martin Luther King Day which was celebrated a week early in Takoma Park because the holiday falls on Inauguration Day this year.
The service-day activity was part of celebrations including an arts and crafts display, a message from President Obama, a documentary video about MLK and Takoma Park civil rights leader Lee Jordan, a potluck supper and and evening program. See photos here.
