WARSAW, N.C. (WITN) -Sunday’s winter weather forced one church here in the East to cancel their event honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday.

Chairman of the Dr. Martin Luther King birthday committee, Marie Dixon said in hopes to keep people safe, the event was canceled because of weather.

WITN meteorologist encouraged people to avoid the roadways Sunday morning because of a sleet and rain mixture.

Dixon said their plan was to sponsor the Freedom for Voters ride across the town of Warsaw to spread awareness around voting rights laws.
