United Way Breakfast Sets Record

Downtown Meridian had a little bit of New Orleans flavor on Friday and it was for a good cause.

The Young Professionals of Meridian held it's annual Beignet Breakfast Friday morning under the awning of the Temple Theater. Large crowds were the norm throughout the morning as the group raised money for the United Way of East Mississippi.

The group sold more than 300-dozen Beignets, a record for the group.
