Jellico will remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Jan. 16 with a service at the municipal building.
The theme for the gathering is serving the community better and promoting community service, said Doris Stiers, who helped arrange the event.
“(Dr.) King was so instrumental in getting communities together in community service,” Stiers said.
The Rev. Gerald Littlejohn, pastor at First Baptist Church on Baptist Street, will speak with an open discussion to follow.
