Birthdays are always a time for great celebration o the Perry Wellness Center campus. For peers and staff, the end of the day is celebrated with a group singing of “Happy Birthday” followed by Stuart Perry’s inevitable interjection of “… and many more!”
Today was a particularly special time of celebration, as it marked the 57th birthday of our Perry Wellness Center founder and CEO, a/k/a “Coach Stuart.” Before Stuart’s arrival at work, balloons were tied aloft in his office and crepe paper adorned many parts of the campus. Balloon also decorated his newly acquired golf cart, thanks to the efforts of daughter Amanda.
Never one to pass up a celebration, Stuart was enthused. He noted with a smile, “I DO celebrate today. Not only is it my birthday, it is MONDAY, and our peer family offers a good report to our start of the day.”
Amid the celebrations, Stuart made time for his first ride over the campus in his balloon-bedecked golf car, in order to view peer activity and, as always, greet everyone along his way.
A very happy birthday to a man who has brought joy and hope into so many lives. And many more!
