January Business Meeting
On January 11, 2020 we had our second focus on Martin Luther King Jr. We played the full sermon “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop”. We played the sermon in 3 segments and our Senior Kappas facilitated discussion and answered questions. This meeting along with our December meeting provided our Kappa Leaguers with a greater appreciation of Dr. King’s sacrifice.
January Cultural Awareness
January 20, 2020, we showed out in force to support the Lawrenceville Martin Luther King Jr. parade. Our young men made a good impression. We had a record 73 Kappa Leaguers and 34 brothers participate!
On February 1, 2020, we attended the movie Just Mercy. It was a great movie based on a true story and showed our young men some positive messages. One that came out in the movie was having a passion for giving back to your community which aligns with our Kappa League program.
