The Riverbend Ministerial Alliance sponsored a Unity March in Alton on Monday to celebrate the life of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  The march began and ended at the Deliverance Temple Church on East 6th Street, and featured about 100 participants.

Group member Mike Adams of Lifehouse Community Church says there are so many things that divide us in life that it’s good to unite:

The group marched from the church, through the Hunterstown area to the Lovejoy Monument and back to the church where they heard messages from local pastors and other local officials on the importance of working together for the betterment of the community.
