Friends and family gathered at Weidmann's to celebrate the 90th birthday of former mayor, Al Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum was mayor from 1977 to 1985. He was also instrumental in bringing the Navy base to Meridian.
But along with his many community contributions, Rosenbaum's friends and family say he has been a loving friend and dad.
"Alfred is wonderful and this is a way to pay tribute to a great man," said Bruce Martin, president of Meyer and Rosenbaum Insurance.
"I've had a great ride through life and I stay on the move," said Rosenbaum.
Special guests included Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant, Sen. Videt Carmichael, Mississippi State president Dr. Mark Keenum and Meridian Mayor Cheri Barry.
