Thousands to honor Martin Luther King Jr.

Two marches are set to celebrate the memory and mission of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. One begins at 9 a.m. in the parking area in front of Hughes Stadium at the Sacramento City College campus. Early risers can join the “extra mile,” which departs at 8:30 a.m. from the Oak Park Community Center, 3425 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Marchers will walk along Land Park Drive and 10th Street to the Sacramento Convention Center, site of a Diversity Expo. A second march starts at 9 a.m. at Grant High School, 1400 Grand Ave., and loops through North Sacramento before returning to a wellness expo at Grant.

‘50 bikes’ event set in North Natomas

Community volunteers will join forces to help kids transform bike parts into ready-to-ride bicycles. The event matches 50 well-deserving youth with teams of volunteers to assemble a bike for each child on the team. These “volunteer engineers” hail from local community organizations and businesses, and range from bike enthusiasts to mechanical novices. The event runs from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Natomas Middle School, 3200 North Park Drive.
