The 22nd Annual Bastrop County Martin Luther King Jr. Walk for peace, justice and equality is scheduled for today in Elgin. "A Day On... Not a Day Off" is the annual theme for the program. This year's walk begins at Veterans Memorial Park in downtown Elgin and ends at Booker T. Washington Elementary School at 510 MLK. The program will feature youth from Bastrop, Elgin and Smithville ISD's giving reflections on Dr. King. The communities of Bastrop, Smithville and Elgin have rotated this event since its inception, according to founder Dock Jackson. It will rotate to Smithville in 2012 and return to Bastrop in 2013.
