BEEVILLE — The community is invited Monday to the annual Freedom Walk celebrating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The walk will begin on the courthouse square at 10:30 a.m.

Walkers will then make their way to First United Methodist Church at 106 E. Cleveland St.

Inside the church, everyone is invited to a service honoring Martin Luther King Jr. and his pursuit of equality.

Guest speaker will be the Rev. Howard E. Mims of Luling.

“This march is for everyone,” said Martha Stovall, last year’s march coordinator, of the event. “It is about equalness for everyone.

“It is not just the African-Americans. All are here working together for the good and betterment of man.”

Rev. Mims is a gospel preacher, called from a matrix of the Methodists. He is a retired ordained elder of the United Methodist church and has earned numerous awards. He is in great demand for revivals at churches of all denominations. He has been active in the NAACP and received a special plaque for community service for the Seguin Branch and an award for his BMCR work.

He is presently the pastor of William Taylor United Methodist Church in Luling.
