Bagging TomatoesToday is a special day at Perry Wellness Center, as peers and staff celebrate Halloween on the final day of its annual Spirit Week. This morning, the transit buses unloaded 48 peers to the campus. Eager to compare their Halloween costumes, peers gathered in groups large and small to check out the brightly colored attire. Many peers and staff used the cameras on their personal phones to capture costumed groups throughout the grounds.

The fun-filled day was planned by Amanda Perry Campbell, daughter of PWC founder and CEO Stuart Perry and wife Pam. Proud papa Stuart applauded her efforts for this week, saying, 
“I appreciate Amanda beginning our holiday celebration at Perry Wellness Center. For years, it has been the beginning of a holiday season of fun and friendship with our peers and staff.”


Halloween DanceTraditionally, Halloween celebrations are followed by a busy season of pumpkin carving, float building, tree selling, gift giving, a holiday open house and numerous parties and holiday feasts. Many of these events involve community support from local non-profit organizations, civic groups, and churches.
