Chunky, Mississippi Meridian's City Hall will soon be decked out with a beautiful Christmas tree. Mayor Percy Bland made it a family affair late this afternoon at
Lazy Acres Tree Farm in Chunky. The family found the perfect tree, and Mayor Bland started to cut it down, but actually just warmed up the chainsaw for the others to cut it down! We asked the Mayor what kind of tree they chose, and Bland responded, "The biggest, prettiest, fattest tree that we could find at Lazy Acres and we did that today." The Mayor was joined by his wife and children to announce, "To all of Meridian, Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas."
The tree was a nearly 14-foot Leyland Cypress and will be displayed on the 3rd Floor at Meridian's City Hall.
