Manhattan Christian Fellowship Church in conjunction with Konza United Way and K-State’s Staley School of Leadership Studies, hosted a community dinner and conversation Sunday in celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“It’s an opportunity to learn, listen, engage and meet new friends and partners,” said Lee Ann Smith Desper, executive director of Konza United Way.
Bishop, Darryl R. Martin shared his idea for a healthier community by challenging members of the public and university to work more closely together.
“If we can bridge the gap, come together and discuss how we can make our communities more effective, I think that that’s the beginning of a wonderful thing and a lively community.”
After a meal of soup and salad, participants gathered in the Manhattan Christian Fellowship Church auditorium to share their experiences, hopes and dreams for a stronger Manhattan.
