Beach cleanup day in Santa Cruz County The U.S. Congress proclaimed that Martin Luther King Junior Day should be a national Day of Service, and President Elect Barack Obama and General Colin Powell renew the call to service to make the Monday holiday "a day on" instead of a day off.

Visit USA Service to find a service event near you. In my area are a number of projects to clean up beaches, rivers and trails. Elsewhere around the nation I see food drives, blood drives, recycling events, even a barn raising!

Bike service projects listed nationwide

In Esko, Minnesota there's a bicycle awareness program; Conway, Arkansas bike share organizers need help with repairs; AZ Bikes in Flagstaff, Arizona will offer free bike tune ups.

The Boise Bicycle Project in Idaho will fix up bikes for needy children; in Maryland, the Mount Rainier Bike Co-op plan a trail and shop cleanup day; the Community Cycling Project at the Tulsa [Oklahoma] Hub invites donations of new or used bikes, protective gear, office supplies, manpower and bike repair tools.
