Who's your neighbor?

Martin Luther King Jettie Rhodes Neighborhood Day was founded by the late Mrs. Jettie Rhodes. Mrs. Rhodes had a famous quote: "Who’s your neighbor?" This day is all about giving back to the community with fun, family, networking, and a diverse atmosphere. Plan your next family outing at MLK Jettie Rhodes Neighborhood Day. Enjoy free food (while supplies last), live entertainment, kids’ activities, raffle prizes, and a wealth of resourceful information provided by various local nonprofits. In addition, you may recognize some of our public officials and community members who volunteer for this event each year. Rain or shine, the fun goes on!

We will also be unveiling a special community mural project that began at the 2018 Martin Luther King Jettie Rhodes Neighborhood Day. Local children painted 100 beautiful, abstract pieces. The paintings were arranged and created anew by local artist Lisa Kesler. Please join us for a ribbon-cutting to celebrate the children’s work, the artist, and the incredible art piece.
