MERIDIAN -- Saturday's annual Gene Kleiner Day event has been postponed due to weather.

The event, which is celebrated on the second Saturday in June, honors the generosity of Gene Kleiner, who donated the 60-acre, $25 million Julius M. Kleiner park to the City of Meridian and its residents, in honor of his late father.

The park sits on the land Julius farmed until his death in 1972.

The event will be rescheduled at a later date.
