As Spring arrives, more moderate temperatures have been anticipated in South Georgia. But the weather has had other ideas. On Monday morning the temperature hovered at 47 degrees in Americus. As on many such mornings, early arriving Perry Wellness Center peers welcomed the opportunity to stand around the campus fire pit.
“We enjoy building a fire and talking about our weekend,” Tyshaun Thomas explains. “We are trying to burn rotten and old wood. It is fun to stand by the fire.” With each fresh loading of firewood into the pit, individuals wonder if it will be the last fire of the season.
The latest remnants of winter may be holding on, but PWC founder and CEO Stuart Perry looks forward to a busy spring at the market, as he continues an aggressive campaign of rebuilding and renewal.
”We want this market to look its best and welcome another record number of customers!” he says.
In the meantime, Cameron Clayton, Tyshaun Thomas, Raymond Davis, and Awan Smith, pictured above, prepare to enjoy an unseasonal fire in the PWC fire pit.
