ARC hosts MLK celebration in Congers
ARC of Rockland honored Martin Luther King Jr. Friday at a celebration in Congers.
Dr. King was born on January 15, 1929, making the event even more special for those who attended. Dr. King was assassinated in 1968 and was remembered for fighting for civil rights.
ARC of Rockland serves about 1,200 people with developmental disabilities. Speakers at the event pointed to organizations like ARC as the embodiment of Dr. King's goals.
Although the celebration occurs once a year, the impact of Dr. King's hope is felt all year long.
