CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Plans are in place for West Virginia’s annual observation of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

Carolyn Stuart, who heads the Martin Luther King Jr. State Holiday Commission, says the theme for the Jan. 18 commemoration is “There’s Still Work To Be Done; If Not Now, When? If Not You, Who?”

A morning service at Asbury United Methodist Church in Charleston will be followed by a march to the State Capitol Complex for a bell-ringing ceremony. A reception will follow in the Lower Rotunda of the Capitol.

The event is free and open to the public.
