About a hundred people braved a steady rain this morning and marched from Everett Memorial Stadium to the VOA’s Carl Gipson Senior Center to mark the first of two MLK Day celebrations in Everett, Washington this weekend. After some speeches the crowd of marchers went up 37th street to Colby and then north on Colby to Wall Street, east to Lombard and then south to the Carl Gipson Center. There a program featuring Prodigies for Peace winners was held. Here are a few photos from the March. Click photo to enlarge
