It’s a busy time of the year at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. Now on the walls in advance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Jan. 21) is Images of Martin Luther King Jr. from the collection of Paul R. Jones. Another way the BRCI is getting ready is by holding a volunteer orientation session Saturday (January 12) from 2 – 4 p.m. BCRI will be free and open to the public on MLK Day and they need extra hands to help with the crowds. If you’d like to help, give LaQuita M. Singleton a call today at 328-9696, ext. 204 for more information.

While it may not be cold enough Saturday morning to make your nose red like Ronald’s, the 4th annual Red Nose Run 10K will kick off at 7 a.m. regardless. The 5K follows at 8:15 and, more my style, a 1-mile fun run at 8:45. The race starts at the new Ronald McDonald House on the Southside, 1700 4th Ave. South. This event raises funds for the house; Cost is $35 for the 10K, $30 for the 5K and the 1 mile fun run is $15.

Did you know that there is one place in the metro area where it is actually cold? Well, maybe just a tad colder. There are two ice rinks out at the Pelham Civic Center. It’s been forever since I laced up a pair of skates. And while I may not look pretty (or more like it, pretty silly) on the ice, it’s great exercise. Admission is $7 with skate rental another $2. Check out the website for public skating times.

For music suggestions this weekend, I’m going to remind you to check out our new weekly column, r3vrb destinations. Sam knows his stuff about the local scene.
