Mississippi Weekend 2015 Has Come & Gone!
On Monday, May 4, 2015, representatives from the Mississippi Society of Georgia met with Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant and presented a check for $12,000 representing the funds raised from Mississippi Weekend 2014. We are proud to be the only Mississippi Picnic group that sends funds directly back to the state of Mississippi in the form of scholarships. Your participation in the golf tournament and purchasing prize pack tickets contribute directly to this total. Let's make the 2015 check even bigger!

The Mississippi Society of Georgia gathered for a social at Smokebelly BBQ in Buckhead on Tuesday, February 17th. Since most of Georgia does not do Fat Tuesday, it was a perfect time to gather with fellow alumni and other Mississippi friends to show 'em how its done. Cash and canned goods were collected to support Atlanta Community Food Bank. Check out more pictures from the event under the Photos section.
The Mississippi Society of Georgia is pleased to announce that we will award our $1,000 scholarship for a 5th consecutive year. We will award to a class of 2015 Georgia high school student accepted by a Mississippi college or university. The applications are in and the panel is making their decision. You can check out the previous winnners on the Scholarship section of this website. We will announce our 2015 winner at the picnic.
