The mission of the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Coalition of Lebanon, Ohio is to honor Dr. King's vision of justice by building an inclusive network of individuals and organizations that work toward empowerment for people.
The MLK Community Coalition of Lebanon is to be a proud community partner with local, regional, and national organizations such as Service for Peace, Serve Ohio and MLKDay.gov.
Lighting The Way To Peace MLK March:
At 6 pm, we invited the community to gather at Bethel A.M.E. Church, 111 N. Cherry Street in Lebanon, Ohio to participate in our first MLK March. This candlelight MLK March traveled down Cherry to East Silver, south on Broadway, east on Mulberry and south on East Street leading to St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church, where the evening musical celebration began at 7 pm.
The 30th Annual MLK Day event was a musical celebration featuring the Bethel Middletown Mass Choir, a classical performance by Peg Allen and Jan Rydalch, music by Pastor Tom Giron, and dance performances by Street Angelz Christian urban dance group. The students of Lebanon City Schools were honored for their participation in the MLK Essay Contest sponsored by the Lebanon Optimist Club. We also recognized the 2015 MLK Drum Major award winners: Mayor Amy Brewer, Mrs. Alyne Scott and Rev. Wilbur & Mrs. Doris Woodson.
