More than 91 years after Martin Luther King Jr. was born in Atlanta, Ga., residents of the city of Highland Park honored his legacy in their own way — by taking part in more than 40 service projects at the Park District of Highland Park’s Recreation Center as part of the annual Martin Luther King Day of Service event.

The event has been happening for the past 11 years, according to Park District of Highland Park Commissioner Terry Grossberg.
