Upon arrival a few minutes will be set aside for greeting, prayer, and a few praise songs. The march will take place down 6th St. to Ridge St. and then down to 4th street, then up to the Eli P. Lovejoy Monument. Local man Ben Golley is scheduled to recite a few lines of the MLK I have dream speech. Any and all are welcome.
