Loveland, Ohio – The Loveland Initiative and the Social Action Commission and Living Peace and Justice committees of St. Columban Church combined their efforts in organizing the 2018 celebration of the life of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Sunday night. The event was held at the St. Columban Parish Hall.
People brought their favorite dish for the 19th annual pot-luck event that began with the Loveland Initiative’s Teen group almost two decades ago.
The event featured a meet and greet by St. Columban member Steve Ellis, a keynote address by Rev. Royce Winters from the Church of the Resurrection in Bond Hill, entertainment, and readings of original poetry.
Entertainment was provided by Oxford Gourd Drum Ensemble/Cincinnati Drum and Tribal Dance, the choir from Calvary United Methodist Church, and the Heavenly Expressions praise dancers from Milford Ebenezer Baptist Church. Loveland Magazine and Loveland Kroger were sponsors of the event.
