Video: Church Celebrates Kids This Memorial Day

MACON, Miss. (WCBI) — While North Mississippi residents recognize veterans across the area, one community is spending Memorial Day celebrating its kids.

St. Paul United Methodist Church in Macon wanted to spend the holiday giving back to the community.

Church members hosted a fun day at the park, with plenty of activities for the kids.

Children hula hooped, jumped rope, played basketball, and many other games.

“As a community, we need to start doing things for our kids,” said coordinator Marlina Conner. “This is our first annual youth community wide picnic here at St. Paul United Methodist Church, and we are looking forward to having it every year from here on out.”

The kids also enjoyed hot dogs, hamburgers, and cold drinks.
