Local group gives back to the community

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK)- It was raining in some areas, but that didn’t stop one local group from giving back to the community.

There was a Community Fall Festival on the City Hall Lawn. This event featured several activities including a bounce house, sandbag toss, dart balloons, and live music.

The purpose of the event is meant to bring the community together in fellowship. The festival also had a Breast Cancer theme, where the community celebrated survivors and the ones that are still fighting the disease.

“I love my peoples. The main thing is the more that is given the more that is required. God blessed me, and I try to bless my people,” event organizer Kevin Lewis SR.

Lewis says the next event will be a Christmas drive in December.
