The day-long celebration begins at Sicklerville United Methodist Church with a Volunteer Kick-Off where guests will have breakfast, preview Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s “I Have A Dream” speech and move into action inspired by a unifying address and song selection to move them to lift their voices and hands in service of others.
