Police appreciation rally is set for Meridian next week

A past commander of American Legion Post 113 in Meridian plans a rally next to Meridian City Hall on Saturday, July 30, to show support for local police officers.

"I have been disgusted and heartbroken over the deadly attacks on our police officers nationwide," Frank Kenny wrote to the media and supporters.

Rally participants are asked to gather at 11:30 a.m. at 22 West Broadway, across from the American Legion office, then walk over to the courtyard at City Hall, Kenny said Thursday.

"We'll be sharing stories and appreciations of police," he said.
