PALMDALE – The City of Palmdale has announced its “Season of Service” events for 2019, as part of the City’s participation in the “National Day of Service” in recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

“You can make a difference in YOUR community by participating in the City’s 6th annual Season of Service,” said Community Programs Coordinator Trish Jones. “Our theme this year is Serve, Learn, Give, and between now and May there are many opportunities to volunteer your time, learn about the community and give back in areas that are meaningful to you.”

Kicking things off is the annual MLK Day of Celebration “Hope and Unity Block Party” sponsored by Advancing Communities Together (ACT). The event will take place this Saturday, Jan. 19 from 11 am to 2 pm at ACT’s facility located at 38626 9th St. East. The block party is free and open to the community and will feature games, food, live music, art and information on available resources.
