MLK Day a holiday for many on Monday
Slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. will be remembered officially this Monday, the holiday in his name.
It's a holiday on the federal and state government level, meaning those offices will be closed. Municipal offices and public schools in Rhode Island are also closed Monday, as well as banks.
On Monday morning, from 7:45 to 10 a.m., the Ministers Alliance of Rhode Island will hold its 24th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Breakfast at Rhodes on-the-Pawtuxet, 60 Rhodes Place, Cranston.
Here's a list of more events in the area marking the day.
The 7to7 news blog, and other projo.com blogs, will be up and running this Monday, with reports on MLK Day activities and, of course, the aftermath of the AFC Championship game on Sunday.
