Today is the 25th anniversary of Ridgefield’s MLK Jr. Day celebration, honoring the legacy of the civil rights leader. The Spirit of Dr. King Award is presented each year to a Ridgefield resident for their outstanding commitment to community service and selflessness. This year's honoree is Mark Robinson, a member of the Youth Commission who founded the celebration. The virtual event will include remarks by United States Senator Richard Blumenthal and performances by The Ridgefield Chorale, KEYS students and others. Actress Kimberly Wilson, who has also been a part of the entertainment every year, will also take part. Robinson served 12 years on the state’s Martin Luther King Holiday Commission from 2000 to 2012.
