Among the many activities on next Monday’s Martin Luther King, Jr., Day is the annual MLK Day Bethel Chess Tournament. It’s free and open only to Bethel students.
The top two school teams from the K-8 level will earn free admission to the Lane and Douglas County Regional Chess for Success Tournament that will be hosted at Willamette on Feb. 21.
Other community-wide events on MLK Day include the annual Community March from PK Park (next to Autzen Stadium) to Downtown Eugene, beginning at 10:00.
Monday evening is the MLK Day Celebration at LCC’s main campus, starting at 6:30. Seating is limited so tickets are required to see keynote speaker Holly Robinson-Peete. For free tickets contact Greg Evans (Eugene City Councilor/LCC instructor/Bethel parent.)
