Monday January 18, 2021 is MLK Day, a Day of Service

Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a federal holiday which honors the slain civil rights leader. Because it is a federal holiday, most federal and state employees have the day off. Locally, you will find most city and county government offices closed and no postal service or banking services. Around Hopkins County, many schools are observing a student holiday, while other schools are holding classes today. Some local businesses may be closed today.

Use social distancing and stay safe while doing acts of kindness in honor of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
