Planning for Meridianites Picnic and Convention

Meridian, Miss.

The 48th Annual National Council of Meridianites Picnic and Convention will be in Meridian this year. It will be June 25-28.

The picnic travels the country but every five years it returns to Meridian.

Five thousand people are expected. Events will be going on throughout the whole city, including the picnic at Highland Park Saturday, June 28.

"A lot of our guests have not been home in over twenty years, so they are looking forward to coming back and seeing the renovations that are taking place in the downtown area as well as the MSU Riley Center," said co-chair, Otis Gowdy, Jr.
