Flag raising at MLK Day march

Hundreds of people watch the flag raising at the march for Martin Luther King Day in Temple. Look for stories and photos of the MLK Day events in Tuesday's Telegram.

The event began at A New Fellowship Church’s gym, 510 E. Ave. J, with the first ever flag-raising ceremony led by Boy Scouts of America Unit 716.

Participants were to march east on Avenue H to Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church, 511 S. 20th St. 

Benny Walsh — Temple’s NAACP chapter president — said the theme for this year’s march and program is “2020 vision of love for another.”
