Over the last few weeks, the plant and garden area off the lower parking lot of Perry Wellness Center has been redesigned. As a result, a group of peers and friends at the center have selected this spot for their morning gathering. Even though August days are hot, cooler mornings allow for conversation among the group.
Those who assemble there like to discuss current events, personal stories, and news that might affect their lives. Perry Wellness Center founder and CEO Stuart Perry encourages the face-to-face discussions.
“When we are not in groups, I think it is good for these friends to meet in this seasonal area and talk,” Stuart notes. “With the increased use of texting and cell phones, personal communication seems to be less and less. I appreciate the time of sharing thoughts with each other.”
The level of conversation will only rise as the temperatures decrease, and both peers and staff eagerly await the cooler mornings of fall.
