The local chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation met Thursday to discuss plans for its 8th Annual Walk for Wishes in Meridian, as well as get a regular update of ongoing projects.
The foundation is seeking more teams and sponsors for this year's walk. Volunteers are always welcome.
The foundation meets the first Thursday of each month at 12 noon at Lauderdale County Farm Bureau on Highway 39 in Meridian.
"We try to network with the community. We're working on a swimming pool wish right now," said Brenda Golisch, Make-A-Wish volunteer. "We'll be looking for somebody to help build that deck, landscaping. there's just a lot of networking that goes on in these monthly meetings, as we grant these wishes for the children."
The annual Walk for Wishes in Meridian is Saturday, Apr. 2, downtown. Registration is at 8 a.m. The walk starts at 9 a.m. Fore more information, call 601-483-8144.
