On January 19, 2009, we will again have the opportunity of honoring Dr.
Martin Luther King, his values, his contributions and his legacy.

There will be a number of events on the weekend, and during the
preceding week, but we particularly want to bring to your attention the
Martin Luther King March on Monday, January 19, 2009.

Over the years, the Dayton community has created an event that reflects
the best of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s values and hopes - the need for
a community to come together in good will and reconciliation. This
year, it seems even more important that the Martin Luther King message
be observed by all of us - Christians, Hindus, Jews, Muslims, persons
from Dayton, Oakwood, Kettering, Centerville, Huber Heights, Trotwood,
Clayton, the youth and the elderly, -representatives from all the parts
of the world who comprise the Dayton community.

The Dayton March begins in four separate locations. As each march
proceeds, it gathers in more people until the truly joyous moment when
east, west, south and north join tumultuously at Third & Main and four
streams of people become one community.

This is not just an invitation but also a call to the community for all
persons and organizations to be with us on January 19, 2009. Youth and
youth organizations are particularly called but everyone in the
community is welcome. Banners recognizing any of our marching
organizations will be very welcome. We would appreciate your including
this event in your church, university, or school bulletin announcements,
starting after December 18, 2008. The starting point of the march for
the South Quadrant is Dayton Fairgrounds , and we will begin marching
downtown at 11:00 am. Please feel free to join us for the march and

We look forward to seeing you on January 19th in the march, and at
Courthouse Square.
