Day of Service honors King’s legacy of strengthening communities

SHOW LOW, Ariz. (April 8, 2015) – Join City of Show Low employees and volunteers for a King Day of Service on Saturday, May 9. Everyone will meet at 9 a.m. at the Old Pavilion in Show Low City Park, 1100 W. Deuce of Clubs, for assignments. (The Old Pavilion is the one closest to the aquatic center.) Lunch follows at noon in the same location. Volunteers should bring gloves and the city will provide other equipment.

Go to for information or to register. Type in zip code 85901, and select City of Show Low Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. However, volunteers do not need to register to participate in our community project. Direct questions to Jay Brimhall at 532-4014 or

In past years, the City of Show Low has set aside the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday (observed in January) for an annual community clean-up project. This year, it was decided to move the annual King Day of Service to May, when the weather is warmer and more predictable.

The King Day of Service was initiated by Congress in 1994 to honor King’s legacy of service to strengthen communities and achieve common goals through volunteerism. The aim is to bring together people of all ages and backgrounds to improve lives and bridge social barriers. We invite any interested citizen to join us as we share King’s dream of a more unified and strengthened community.
