Tomato Reigns Supreme at Market

Tomato CapitalAnyone who has stopped by Rudy’s Happy Patch Market knows that the tomato is king! Several years ago, Perry Wellness Center founder and CEO Stuart Perry determined that the market would produce year-round tomatoes to satisfy customers.

“Years ago, I realized how much our customers really liked fresh garden tomatoes,” Stuart explains. “I have worked to locate area and state providers who will be sure that we do have these vegetables in our market.”

Large tables of fresh tomatoes fill the busy market. Tomatoes are sold in various sizes, amounts, and degrees of ripeness, to satisfy all customers.

“I came by to get some giant tomatoes,” one customer states. “I plan to have a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich for lunch. Your tomatoes are the largest that I have found and will cover a slice of bread.”

Georgia is known as the peach capital and peanut capital. At Perry Wellness Center, we modestly hope that Rudy’s Happy Patch Market will come to be known as the tomato capital of south Georgia!

PWC Peer a Top Volunteer

Kaylon Holt 2018Most of our longtime readers are familiar with one of Perry Wellness Center’s most active peers, Kaylon Holt. The young Marion County native has achieved regional recognition for his volunteer efforts on behalf of the Ronald McDonald House in Columbus, Georgia.

We checked in recently with Kaylon for an update on the status of his efforts. After a couple of years of collecting pop tops from soda cans, the enterprising peer has donated over 1,200,000 redeemable pop tops to the non-profit organization. This number represents the largest individual donation of pop tops in the area. His efforts have been supported by Perry Wellness Center and many local schools and businesses, for which he is grateful.

But Kaylon contributes in other ways to the center and the community. Right now he volunteers to welcome visitors to Perry Wellness Center.

“People in Sumter, Schley, Macon, and Marion Counties have been good to me,” Kaylon says. “Many of them have discovered Happy Patch Market, and many have brought me more pop tops. I just want to welcome them to our center.”

Soon, Kaylon will deliver several thousand additional pop tops to the Ronald McDonald Center. We salute his for his tireless efforts on behalf of young people in the region.

In the photo above, Kaylon Holt cleans the pathway and steps that greet visitors to the Perry Wellness Center campus.

A Pause for Learning

Learning toolAs the day begins each morning at Perry Wellness Center, peers engage in a variety of activities, from conversation to video games. While many peers enjoy social activities, others use their “down” time to work on hobbies and learning activities.

One such peer is Jeanette Williams, who likes to work on Word Jumble books. She explains, “This is fun, and I feel good when I complete a page. It gives me something to do, and I learn new words and meanings.”

Several weeks ago, the center contacted the Mini-Mags Group, publisher of Word Jumbles, about obtaining complimentary copies of their books. While there has not yet been a response from the parent company, PWC founder and CEO Stuart Perry is hopeful.

“It is exciting to see Jeanette learning new words,” Stuart notes. “She has been improving her life with these skills for weeks. I will provide her new books if she asks.”

In the photo above, Jeanette Williams works on her word learning for the day in a quiet spot.

Catching Up at the Market

Civic leadersOn many a morning, Rudy’s Happy Patch Market becomes a meeting ground for Perry Wellness Center supporters and notable local citizens. On one such recent morning, local agri-businessman and market supplier Jim Buchanan came by with a case of his popular Buchanan Farms tomatoes and stopped to chat with Arnold Durham and George Hooks. The retired civic leaders praised Buchanan’s tomatoes, and the group even posed for a group picture featuring a hastily placed “Buchanan Farms” sign.

Jim Buchanan explained, “Happy Patch is a great customer of mine. Each time I deliver tomatoes, I see friends and meet many new customers here at the market. My visits are fun and our conversation is always informative.”

Thanks for stopping by, gentlemen!

The Drive to Independence

Drivers testThroughout the year, several peers have questions about obtaining their drivers’ license. Perry Wellness Center aims to assist peers in the goal of greater independence through a valid drivers’ permit. Classes have been established to provide information and assistance to interested peers. Printed study books have been obtained from the local Dept. of Driver Services office, and peers also are directed to the online study guide and practice test.

This month, peers who are studying for their license have started a friendly competition between the men and women. Peers and certified peer specialists work together to research, study, and complete a series of electronic practice tests found online at the Georgia DDS website. Individuals may take the exams, which include questions on road sign recognition and proper driving regulations, as often as they wish.

In the current gender-based competition, women have taken the lead, scoring overall in the 90th percentile. The passing score for a test is 75%. Go, ladies!

In the photo above, staff member and CPS Ric Vogt, left, and peer Shanora Robinson check out an online driver’s test.
