Music, marches and speeches celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Marchers walk along College Avenue as they approach Fair Street School during the annual Martin Luther King Day march. The march finished at the school where a King Holiday Observance Program was held in the gymnasium.
For the past 25 years, Bill and Robin Neiheisel of Oakwood have shown their respect for Martin Luther King Jr. in their unique way — carrying a banner in marching to honor the slain civil rights leader. “We believe in unity of mankind. It was part of King’s dream,” said Bill Neiheisel, who, along with Robin, held a banner that read “Good neighbors come in all colors!” and “We believe in the elimination of all prejudice.”
