Summer Barbecue: Thanks to Civitans!
Our community benefactors are many at Perry Wellness Center. We are grateful to be part of such a supportive community.
One of our most faithful supporters has been the Americus Civitan Club. Since we started the Tom Perry Peer Center, the club has been in our corner. With our move to create Perry Wellness Center, the Americus Civitans continued their many acts of generosity.
Stuart Perry points out: "They are quite generous. Their kind support continues." From annual holiday visits and gifts to peers to donated goods, the Civitans always remember those we serve.
This week, we received the unexpected gift of 15 pounds of barbecue, 25 pounds of crinkle-cut fries, and a flat of hamburger buns. After Grant Williams of the local civic club contacted us, our culinary director, Kelly Jansen, arranged pick-up.
Nothing is better than a good barbeque meal in summer, so we'll put this generous donation to good use!
Our thanks as always to the Americus Civitan Club!
