The ceremony will take place at City Hall at 10 a.m. and will feature guests speakers including Mayor Tommy Allegood, Alderman Tim Houston and other figures from the local community.
Immediately following the ceremony, the Acworth Achievers Mentoring and After School Program will commemorate the day by planting a “Unity” tree during its 4th Annual MLK Day of Service at the historic Roberts School Community and Education Center.
