Katrina ceremony Sunday morning at 8, rain or shine

In the event of driving rain, Biloxi’s Katrina memorial observance will move to City Hall, two blocks north of the Town Green.

“We’ve been fortunate to have this observance on the Town Green under clear skies for the past four years,” Mayor A.J. Holloway said. “We’re hoping that will be the case again this year. When you arrive tomorrow for the 8 o’clock service, if we’re not on the Town Green, just go a couple blocks north on Lameuse Street to City Hall.”

Holloway said the decision whether to move indoors will be made shortly before 8 a.m.

Program participants include U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, U.S. Rep. Gene Taylor, MEMA Executive Director Mike Womack, and Bishop Roger Morin of the Catholic Diocese of Biloxi.
