MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The Arts & Community Event Society and the City of Meridian cleaned up the flowerbeds and sidewalks around downtown Meridian on Saturday. After the cleanup, the volunteers celebrated with a snack and a glass of wine.

Debby Delshad, an organizer of the event, said the event’s purpose was to keep downtown clean.

“We pick up any litter, any debris, and so we are just beautifying downtown. ACES, they are wonderful. I mean, the events that they have, anything that I’ve participated in with them has just been top-notch and they care about downtown. So, this is an easy peasy way to contribute and make it beautiful,” said Delshad.

City Judge Dustin Markham said the city was happy to work with ACES.

“It’s an opportunity for us to work and partner with the ACES and kind of allow some of the people who are city court participants to satisfy their city obligations. So, it is a blessing to be able to hang out with the ACES. They do a lot of great work in the community. We are glad to be a part,” said Judge Markham
