Friendship Village of Schaumburg will hold a special observance of Martin Luther King Day, featuring a unique Community Mural of Inspiration. During the course of the day, residents, associates and visitors will have the opportunity to write on a yellow paper cutout flame, about something that has inspired them. This will be attached to a 15 ft. by 6 ft. black mural. Event coordinators are hoping that the resulting mural will hold hundreds of flames citing sources of inspiration.

"Dr. King inspired us with his words and actions. Even all of these years after his death, he remains an inspiration," said Jeannette Magdaleno, life long learning and volunteer coordinator at Friendship Village. "This project gives us the opportunity to pause in our day and think about him, as well as the good things in our own lives."
