It’s back to work and back to school. For those working in the corporate world, no official holidays until Memorial Day. *sad trombone*

 

For everyone else, Martin Luther King Jr. Day is just around the corner! We’re in the middle of San Antonio’s DreamWeek which includes over 200 events in and around San Antonio. On Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Monday, January 15th), San Antonio will host its 50th annual MLK March, which is noted as the largest in the nation. If you can swing it, join the march and recognize those who have fought and continue fighting for civil justice in our city, state, and nation.

 

Enjoy your weekend!
