Shreveport Public Assembly & Recreation (SPAR) and Centenary College have joined forces to hold a Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service event on Monday, February 16, 2012 from 8:30 – 11:30am at Querbes Community Center. The event will feature Wacky Olympics hosted by Centenary college athletes. There will also be a scavenger hunt. The event is free and the public is invited and encouraged to attend. The center is located at 3500 Beverly Place.

After a long struggle, legislation was signed in 1983 creating a federal holiday marking the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The federal holiday was first observed in 1986, making 2011 the 25th anniversary of the King federal holiday. The national Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service was started by former Pennsylvania U.S. Senator Harris Wofford and Atlanta U. S. Congressman John Lewis, who co-authored the King Holiday and Service Act. The federal legislation challenges Americans to transform the King Holiday into a day of citizen action volunteer service in honor of Dr. King. The federal legislation was signed into law by President Bill Clinton on August 23, 1994. In honor of Dr. King, volunteers across the country donate their time to make a difference on this day.
