Make Saturday, January 19, 2013 as “Day On not a Day Off.”  To Celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the Banneker-Douglas Museum, the Volunteer Center for Anne Arundel County and their partners invite you to celebrate by coming together and volunteering for several nonprofit organizations at one central location.
