BILLINGS, Mont. -

This year, our nation celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the "I have a dream" speech. To honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Not In Our Town Billings is holding their 4th Annual "I am Billings" Community Photo.

Not In Our Town Billings is an anti-discrimination group and every year, the organization invites people of all races, religion, gender, and sexual orientation together for a community photo. The photo declares that we are Billings, and it's ok to be diverse. In addition to the community photo, many other events are also being held in honor of Doctor Martin Luther King Jr.

    For one teen, volunteering is more than just work, it's an inspiration. Hannah Halvorson explained how volunteering in her community has impacted her life. "The biggest reward is being able to spend time with people and making their days and always seeing the smiles on their face." Halvorson said.  For the 14-year-old,  her volunteer work helping at nursing homes has made her friends and memories to last, and her hard work hasn't gone unnoticed.
