By PAT BAILEY

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Monday was a day on, not a day off for volunteers from Hamilton College, who were on hand at Johnson Park in Utica on Monday, helping to fix up the Johnson Park Center.

Reverend Maria Scates says the volunteer work is exactly what Dr. Martin Luther King stood for - helping one another. Reverend Scates says it is work like that which was done Monday by the volunteers that helps the legacy of Dr. King live on.

"And that is the message Dr. King wants us to do - work together, side by side, regardless of race, creed, color, sex, orientation," Reverend Scates said. "All of us working together for the common good, making our communities beautiful, clean and safe."

This is the fifth straight Martin Luther King Day that the Hamilton College staff has volunteered.
