Many of our readers are familiar with the game “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon,” in whichplayers try to make the connection between two seemingly unrelated celebrities or other famous people. Perry Wellness Center founder and CEO Stuart Perry would surely be a winner at this game, as he brings together people from so many locations and walks of life in his community outreach.
On a recent day at Rudy’s Happy Patch Market, Stuart was in the midst of a lively discussion among customers. Sandy Spady, an Oglethorpe resident, chatted with Stuart and introduced her friends, Joyce and Bill Boland, who were visiting from Wetumpka, Alabama.
During their discussion, it was learned that Sandy Spady is closely involved with the Chase family of Chase Family Farms. With no hesitation, Stuart made a connection, telling her that Rudy’s Happy Patch Market had been selected by Mrs. Chase as the only Sumter County outlet for the farm’s nationally famous corn.
“We are pleased to promote good in South Georgia,” Stuart said with a smile.
Their visit was an opportunity to establish new connections – and for the Bolands to find the perfect red geranium basket to take home to Alabama.
