Fall Fair Fun!

Andersonville Fair

This past weekend, 37 peer members joined staff from the Perry Wellness Center to travel to historic Andersonville for its annual parade and fair. We had a sprawling booth and display area, which included fresh produce, colorful mums, and such seasonal décor as candlesticks and wreaths.

More than the opportunity to sell our wares, the fair provided a chance for peer members to experience the history-filled town of Andersonville and participate in what was, for many, their first fall fair and parade. As Stuart Perry noted, "This was a new experience for many of our peer members. It was a fun time for them to be away, enjoy our community, and experience fun with their friends and supporters. Both days were fun-filled."

Finally, outings such as this provide a great way to carry out our mission of advancing personal health and well-being among those who suffer from the effects of mental illness or addictive disease. And what better way to de-stigmatize such disorders than by being an active part of the larger community during times of celebration!

As they say, a good time was had by all. So much so, we're already planning our next excursion to a fall festival in Montezuma at the end of the month. See you there!
