MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - East Mississippi Business Development Corporation held its monthly "Business After Hours" event at Meridian Plastic Surgery Thursday afternoon. Several local businesses were in attendance eating and socializing. Members of the EMBDC say that this event is a wonderful way to get to know fellow business colleagues.

"It's a time when our local businesses can get together to either meet new people that they haven't met before or rekindle and greet with people that they have not seen in sometime," says
Dr. Lee Thornton.

"You just support your business and all the other businesses because we are all interlinked and depend on one another," says Dr. Mark Elliott.

Meridian Plastic Surgery is located on Hwy 39. Their hours are from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
