Holiday Plans Change

A service at First Missionary Baptist, Pulaski, will be held on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Jan. 17, possibly the only local observance of the holiday.

The Giles County Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People will not hold a Unity March on the holiday.

“Due to the increased transmission of Covid 19 across the State of Tennessee, the Giles County Branch of the NAACP has received guidance from the national NAACP Board of Directors that no in-person meetings or events will be held,” according to Benita Cross, an NAACP spokesman.

“Due to this guidance and the inability to facilitate a virtual fellowship, the branch will not be hosting a Dr. Martin Luther King Day Unity March or program this year.”

The Ministers’ League of Pulaski will put on the program at 7 p.m. at First Missionary Baptist, 200 Chapel Road.
