About the event

The National Council of Meridianites, Inc., evolved during the 1960s after several Meridianites reunited at the

funeral of a friend in Detroit. Because the friends had not seen each other in several years, they decided to plan

more fellowship gatherings in the future, which eventually became regular events. This marks the 55th

National Council of Meridian Convention and Picnic. This is the 11th Anniversary for Meridian as the host city.

We always look forward to returning home. It’s such a huge celebration of friends and family in Meridian.

The NCM Picnic will be held at Highland Park, a 32 acres park with historic significance: the Stone Bridge, the

vintage Dentzel Carousel are listed among the Mississippi State Historical Sites and the National Register of Historic

Places. The stone bridge crosses the duck pond. The bridge is near the Jimmie Rodgers Memorial Museum. We are

encouraging everyone to come attired in their Chapter Colors. Chicken/ribs and other down-home food will be

served to convention registration ticket holders. A variety of activities will be available: Inflatables, carousel

rides, swimming, assorted music, etc.
