The weather should be better than last year for the upcoming Martin Luther King Jr. service project.
Partly cloudy days with highs in the lower 50s and lower 40s are forecast for Saturday-Monday, Jan. 14-16. The chance of precipitation is about 10 percent.
In January 2011, residents trudged through snow that had fallen across the metro area.
This is the 10th straight year that Decatur is holding its MLK Day service project.
According to information given to the Decatur City Commission Monday night, volunteers will work in 65 yards of lower-income senior citizens and make repairs in 22 homes.
Last year about 1,200 people volunteered and worked on 67 houses.
If you want to help out, you can work these shifts:
• Saturday, Jan. 14: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
• Sunday, Jan. 15: 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
• Monday, Jan. 16: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
To volunteer to make home repairs or do yard work, contact Lee Ann Harvey, 678-553-6548 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can volunteer as an individual or a group.
