Today, over 80 young people at the East Side Library, were treated to an Ice Cream Social to announce the Essay and Poetry Contest for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, January 17, 2011.
There were cones and bowls of McConnell's Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, served by Beverly King of the MLK Jr. Celebration Committee. Contest posters were passed out and a small collection of the Library's MLK Jr. book offerings were on display in the lobby.
There will be $800 in prizes awarded to winners in the Essay and Poetry categories and will be presented at the Arlington Theatre, at the MLK Jr. Day Celebration. Competition is open to all local youth and teens, ages 6 to 18.
