Belinda Smiley McLendon’s recent request to the Ludowici City Council to rename Main Street for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was taken to heart.

Ludowici Mayor Jim Fuller gave a welcome and Long County Commission Chairman David Richardson offered a greeting. Tributes were made by Ludowici Mayor-Pro-tem Mary Hamilton and Tiffany Green. State Rep. Al Williams was the keynote speaker.
