Meridian, Mississippi Women of all denominations gathered at the Lauderdale Baptist Association in Marion this evening for an event aimed at celebrating women and their accomplishments.
The organization "Women Who Win" hosted the special gathering. The founder of the group, Linnie Scarbrough, says the group meets three times a year and it's a time for the women to celebrate all that they've overcome. "It's not just another meeting to go to," explained Scarbrough. "I'm a pastor's wife, I don't want another meeting, I don't want another greeting session where I'm so friendly to everybody. But this, this happens three times a year and that just keeps it from being just another meeting."
The third meeting of the year is set for Tuesday, October 14th. The group will celebrate its 10th anniversary next spring.
