DENTON, Md. - About 250 people turned out in Denton for a day of service in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Monday's event was the second in the Eastern Shore community. The event was described a "day on" instead of a day off for Caroline County students, who were able to earn service learning hours required for graduation.
A freedom march and a performance of King's "I Have a Dream" speech were also part of the events that coincided with the presidential inauguration in Washington.
Event organizer Wanda Molock told The Star Democrat of Easton ( http://bit.ly/VXfm7w) that people talk about taking action all the time, and the event was an opportunity to do so.
