Albany - The 24th annual King Commemorative Program was held Monday morning at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Albany. The crowd was encouraged to not only have a dream, but to help others fulfill their dreams. Ann Johnson-Byrd says, "It's in celebration of what King did and what we need to do, so we will encourage people to keep giving, keep serving, because that's what he was about, service to mankind."

The program was sponsored by Proctor and Gamble and H.E.A.R.T., Hands Extended Across Reaching Together. An offering was taken up during the service and will be donated to families in south Asia devastated by the tsunami.
