On Saturday, January 28th, at 9:00 a.m., at Martin’s Caterers, in Westminster, Baltimore Sun sports writer Mike Preston will be the guest speaker at the 14th annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. breakfast, sponsored by the Carroll County NAACP Branch 7014.

This breakfast was previously scheduled on Saturday, January 14, but was postponed due to the threat of bad weather.

I will have the privilege and honor of introducing my Baltimore Sun – Sun Media Group colleague, Mr. Preston that morning.

Veteran journalist Preston is a sports columnist for The Baltimore Sun, focusing on the Ravens and lacrosse. He is a 1977 graduate of Kenwood High, and a 1981 Towson University graduate. Preston has been writing for The Sun since 1987 and has been a columnist since 2000.

Additional tickets may be purchased at this time. If you would like to purchase tickets for the new date, there are several options: online at or call Jean at 410-861-6872.

On the other hand, you can email me at Make sure the words Preston NAACP breakfast are in the subject line. On the other hand, if you know my phone number, just give me a call.

Over the years, the annual MLK breakfast has turned into a popular and well-attended event and a great break from the gray and cold of Maryland’s winters.

We need to turn in the final count to the caterer soon, so if you want tickets, be in touch soon. Thanks.
