Caribbean-Americans for Community Involvement (CAFCI), in association with the Village of Royal Palm Beach, held its 16th annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration on Monday, Jan. 15.
The event was held in the auditorium at Royal Palm Beach High School because its usual venue, the Royal Palm Beach Cultural Center, is undergoing renovations.
Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher gave the keynote address, while Aubin Robinson served as master of ceremonies.
There were nine performing soloists or groups to entertain the crowd, including pianist Copeland Davis and the Royal Palm Beach High School Wildcat Band.
Elected officials from Royal Palm Beach and Wellington were in the audience, along with the CAFCI board of directors. Father Brian Campbell, parochial vicar at Our Lady Queen of the Apostles Catholic Church, offered the invocation.
