A very special guest showed up at the Meridian City Council meeting Tuesday. Minnie Mouse joined Mayor Percy Bland to remind the community about the kickoff of the Kidz Zone Initiative this weekend. As part of this effort, on the second Saturday of each month Disney movies will be shown at the Temple Theatre for $2. Free passes are also being distributed to students who are selected by local school officials.
"We've had very good responses from the schools," says Mayor Percy Bland. "From the public schools, from the county schools, from the private schools to the catholic schools, we've just had a big response from everyone."
The movie that will be shown this Saturday is, "Brave." It will start at 11 AM at the Temple Theatre. In an effort to encourage fathers to play active roles within their childrens' lives, all fathers will be allowed to watch the movie for free.
