Meridian, Miss. Members of a local organization gathered Friday evening to celebrate the arrival of a new heritage journal.
The National Council of the Meridianites presented its 2014 souvenir heritage journal "Reflecting on a Legacy: Meridian, the Tie that Binds." The journal was made to complement the upcoming Meridianite Picnic, which takes place on the last weekend of this month. Organizers say knowing our area's history is crucial.
"Because if you don't know history, you are doomed," Mable Oatis says. "Because you will never grow unless you look back and see where you have come from."
