Pastor Jacquelyn Rowe of St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Red Bank will be the keynote speaker at the 26th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Breakfast hosted by The Community YMCA and The YMCA of Western Monmouth County.
The annual YMCA event, which honors the legacy of the civil rights leader, will take place Monday, Jan. 19, 2015, 8 to 10 am, at Branches, 123 Monmouth Road, West Long Branch.
This year, the service project for the breakfast will support Project Homeless Connect of Monmouth County, a charity that works to provide various health and human services for homeless residents, or those who are on in danger of becoming homeless. Donations of gloves, mittens and scarves will be collected at the breakfast.
The memorial event will include musical selections and the winner of an essay contest among YMCA high school participants.
