Bring your little ghosts and goblins out for a free night of family fun at TRICK OR TREAT AND DANCE TO THE BEAT. This 2nd annual event will be held Wednesday, October 29, from 6:00 - 8:30 pm, at Meridian City Hall. Participation is free, but please "treat" the Meridian Food Bank by bringing a canned or non-perishable food item(s) to donate!

Looking for a service project? RAKE UP MERIDIAN is set for Saturday, November 15. Volunteers are needed to rake the yards of Meridian seniors and disabled residents who are unable to rake their own leaves. If you'd like to volunteer to rake -- or you know of an elderly or disabled neighbor who could use a hand with raking -- please let us know! Contact Konrad McDannel at 685-7748 or via e-mail at email@example.com. The deadline to register is October 31st. (To have their yard raked, residents must be over age 65 or disabled, live within the Meridian City limits, and curently reside in the home whose yard is to raked. Sorry, no county addresses or large acreages.)
