The Meridian Housing Authority hosted a community fun day promoting family support systems.
The day started off with a one-mile fun run and continued as several vendors set up provided health screenings and additional information about services available in Meridian. Meridian Mayor Percy Bland was present along with various organizations that supported the fun day initiative.
“Not only do we feel that our fathers need to bond with their sons, but we also feel that mothers need to bond with the daughters, we also feel that the family structure needs to be strengthened by all members of the families and that’s thus the name strong family’s initiative.” Said Ronald Turner, Sr. executive director.
Reverend Gerald Hudson was this year’s fun day keynote speaker and shared with local residents the potential that they have and must live up to.
