Every year, the City of Show Low pays homage to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s ideals of strengthening communities through public service by participating in a community-wide project. The holiday is observed in January, but the city holds its annual King Day of Service in late spring because of the possibility of inclement weather. The King Day of Service was initiated by Congress in 1994 to bring together people of all ages and backgrounds to improve lives and bridge social barriers through public service.
