MLK Day of Service
By Novice Johnson
When Joyce Jackson and the MLK, Jr. Memorial Committee of Pompano Beach planned this year’s event, they not only focused on a Day of Service, they also wanted to recognize many of the community’s leaders and behind the scenes workers. Cloretta Williams founded a program for Senior Citizens in Pompano Beach and she seeks to continue providing them meals, arts and crafts and mind stimulating activities on a daily basis at the E. Pat Larkins Center. Zadia Tyson and Gwendolyn Hodge are educators whose outreach far exceeds their physical location. Both are now retired from the Broward School system, but are equally active in Christian Education and the Women’s Ministry at Mount Calvary Baptist Church in Pompano Beach. They were among those honored at the MLK, Jr. Celebration in Pompano Beach. Pictured here are: Cloretta Williams and her children Janice Williams Edmond, Audrey Williams Jackson, Renee Williams and Curtis Williams; while Zadia Tyson and Gwen Hodge smile as they enjoy the festivities.
