ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - US Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) will make a stop in Roanoke for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.

Sen. Kaine is set to deliver remarks at the MLK Celebration Luncheon with the Roanoke Chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference on Saturday.

Sunday he will attend a church service.

Sen. Kaine says he wants to reflect and talk about the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. but also hear stories about his impact.

”It’s like, you know, going back to scripture, you go back to things that you’ve maybe read or thought about a couple of times in your life but as circumstances change you look back through King’s life and lessons in new ways,” said Sen. Tim Kaine.

Sen. Kaine will also head to Petersburg Monday for MLK Day of Service.
