MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Events are happening all the time in downtown Meridian. Meridian Main Street and the EMBDC want to make sure everyone in the community knows what’s going on.

These organizations have created a text line that make it possible for people to receive updates about the who, what, when, where and why about local happenings.

To sign up, all you have to do is text “DOWNTOWNMERIDIAN” to 601-751-7828.

By following those steps you are signed up for the reminders.

”It’s a text reminder. We don’t want to overwhelm anyone. We try to send it out once a week just to remind them of the events going on for that week. Well, you can never over-communicate, and so that was one of the things people kept saying, ‘hey, I never know what is happening.‘ You might have to go search for it, but this is just another avenue of communicating with the public,” said Main Street Director Matt Schanrock.

This service is free. Once you join, there will not be a confirmation text message. The first message you receive will be about the next week’s events.
