Cleanup Continues on PWC Campus

Hurricane cleanupAs recovery continues from the havoc wreaked by Hurricane Michael last week, both staff and peers have pitched in to clean up the Perry Wellness Center campus, provide hot food to those without power, and provide emotional support for each other.


One way in which peers have joined the effort is through volunteering their time to clean up debris and bring the campus back to its usual attractive appearance.


“I thank God each day for sparing us with Hurrian Michael,” PWC founder and CEO Stuart Perry says fervently. “Pam and I had severe damage at our house, but Perry Wellness Center and our clients are safe. We are pleased with the volunteer cleanup by citizens and peers in our city.” He hails the spirit of community involvement which followed the natural disaster.

Help When the Lights Go Out

Hurricane mealsAs part of its support to peers in the community, Perry Wellness Center stands ready to monitor the status of peers in their neighborhoods on a round-the-clock basis when necessary. This commitment to community support was vital during the recent hurricane event in southwest Georgia.

Although they suffered extensive damage to their own home during the storm, PWC founder and CEO Stuart Perry and his wife Pam, a manager at the center, readily began serving the peer population. One concern was ensuring that individuals had food to eat in the evenings, as well as during the day when attending the center.

“We try to take care of our population,” Stuart explained. “Being without power is no fun. We have been cooking simple food for peers to take home for an evening snack. We had staff delivery on Sunday. Helping others is what Perry Wellness Center is all about.”

Staff member Stephen Thompkins, pictured above, took time away from his work at Rudy’s Happy Patch Market to cook hot dogs for those with no power. With a smile, he noted, “This is good. I feel good trying to help others during this power loss.”

Thanks to all who pitched in to help their neighbors during the once-in-a-lifetime inland Georgia hurricane.

Fall Colors Brighten Campus

Faith CurtisAs the weather settles down after Hurricane Michael blew through southwest Georgia, cooler temperatures have followed. Fall garden mums festively decorate the gardens of Perry Wellness Center and Rudy’s Happy Patch Market.

There’s an old expression about “gilding the lily,” used to describe an attempt to improve upon perfection. In our case, we are “painting the mums. ”To further brighten these fall offerings, market associate Faith Curtis is painting the flower pots in shade of blue and yellow. After each pot dries, she will affix a decorative bow. A newly potted mum will then be placed in the pot to create a perfect hanging basket for fall.

Mealtimes Enjoyable at PWC

James Mahome

Carol Proctor Breakfast and lunch are important times of the day at Perry Wellness Center. In addition to providing healthy nutrition, they provide a forum for conversation and socializing, as well as opportunities for life lessons; e.g., proper eating habits.

As the season changes and the schedule of activities expands, the menu also changes and grows in the Perry Wellness Center cafeteria. The farm-to-table vegetables sold at Rudy’s Happy Patch Market continue to be served in the kitchen, with produce choices reflecting the season. The breakfast menu has also recently been updated, with the addition of waffles, sausage, and bacon.

In the photos, James Mahome quietly enjoys a hot breakfast, and Carol Proctor prepares to eat a lasagna lunch, followed by banana pudding.

Heading Out to Fall Festivals

FestivalsignupThe next month promises to be a busy one for Perry Wellness Center peers who plan to attend one or more of the fall events in the area. The center is providing van transportation for interested peers and staff to attend four area fairs and festivals. 

Following is the upcoming event itinerary:


Saturday, October 6 – Andersonville Fair

Sunday, October 14 – Perry National Fair

Saturday, October 20 – Oglethorpe Deer Days

Saturday, November 3 – Albany Fair


“Fall is a fun time for me and for staff and peers at Perry Wellness Center,” says founder and CEO Stuart Perry. “I hope the weather will be cool as our staff and registered peers attend these four area fairs.”

With a smile, Stuart concludes, “I hope to attend some of these events and ‘be young again.’”

In the photo above, James Foster and Essie Fulkes sign up to attend the Andersonville Fair this weekend.
