The Morris County Board of Freeholders presented a resolution to the Martin Luther King Observance Committee of Morristown on Monday honoring the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Monday marked the 40th anniversary of the observance committee, which has been commemorating King’s birth since 1970. It also was the 40th anniversary of the Annual Service of Celebration, and the 25th Annual Interfaith Breakfast, co-sponsored by the Morris Area Clergy Council.

“The Morris County community has, through these special events, rightfully remembered and celebrated Dr. King’s life, which was devoted to advancing equality, social justice and opportunity for all,” the resolution reads.

The resolution was presented at Monday’s Interfaith Breakfast, which was held at the Hyatt Morristown Hotel, and which was followed by the Annual Service of Celebration at the Calvary Baptist Church in Morristown.
