Spirit Week in Full Swing

Crazy Hat DayAs we told our readers on Monday, Perry Wellness Center is celebrating Spirit Week, October 24 – 31. Monday was Red Ribbon Day, when peers and staff dressed in red and honored the cause of substance abuse prevention and early intervention.

Yesterday was Crazy Hat Day. It is always one of our more fun and creative days. Individuals who fail to wear an unusual hat to the center must make a hat to wear for the day.

Today is Wacky Tacky Day, when anything goes as far as dress. Spirit Week planner Amanda Perry says, “This really is a colorful and fun day. With the cooler weather, I am sure we will enjoy some great concoctions!”

Upcoming is Twin Day, where peers team up with a friend to coordinate a shared theme. Also on the schedule is Decade Day/Favorite Holiday, which is also the designated party day at Perry Wellness Center.

This Friday, peers and staff will close out the week with Costume Day, wearing their favorite Halloween costumes. Amanda notes, “Happy Patch Market is already decorated for the season. We want each peer and staff member to join this celebration.” She adds, conspiratorially, “I cannot wait to see what Daddy wears!”

Neither can we, Amanda; neither can we!

What a colorful, seasonal, and spirited week we are having at Perry Wellness Center. The celebrations remind us of all we have to feel joyful about. Something as simple as a funny hat can brighten a mood or bring a smile.

In the photo above, Pam, Stuart, and Amanda Perry show off their family’s “crazy” haberdashery.

Red Ribbon Week Observed

Red Ribbon Week

Last week we told you about one October observance for substance abuse prevention. This week, Perry Wellness Center joins with millions across the nation in celebrating Red Ribbon Week. This commemorative week was established more than 30 years ago, after the death of a DEA agent, Enrique “Kiki” Camarena.

October Is Substance Abuse Prevention Month


Although many people don’t realize it, Perry Wellness Center serves not only those with mental health problems, but with addictive diseases. Many of our peers have a history of both mental illness and substance abuse.

This month we want to commemorate National Substance Abuse Prevention Month. The first national proclamation was signed by President Obama in 2011, in order to shed more light on the problem of substance abuse in communities and to promote activities that would reduce the likelihood that young people would use alcohol and drugs.

PWC Participates in ACC Food Show

ACC food showRecently, Perry Wellness Center had the opportunity to participate again in a large food show. ACC Foods District Sales Coordinator Hailey Singletary invited representatives to attend its most recent food show in Albany, Georgia. Culinary manager Kelly Jansen, market manager Charles Tanner, staff member Mulkey McMichael, and peer Jantwan Twiggs all attended the show.

A total of 74 food vendors were in attendance, and each site offered bargains and promotions for those attending the event. Kelly Jansen was impressed with the event, saying, “It was a great show. I am happy that Perry Wellness Center was selected to attend the show. I enjoy seeing the large displays and the new ideas on the food market.”

ACC Food Distribution, Inc. is a privately held company in Leesburg, GA. It was established and incorporate in Georgia in 1992. Today the company has annual revenue of up to $20 million and employs a staff of almost 100.

Perry Wellness Center is proud to be a part of the growing number of customers served by this expanding company that supports local food vendors with maximum inventory and competitive prices.

In the photo above ACC representative Hailey Singletary, left, welcomes market manager Charles Tanner, culinary director Kelly Jansen, and peer leadership client Jantwan Twiggs to the Albany food show.

Art & Science: New Market Shelves Created

Stripling displayLast week we told you that Rudy’s Happy Patch Market was now filling its shelves with products from Stripling Farms. “Filling” is the operative word. Increasingly limited display space in the market led to the call for additional shelving.

After initial measurements and placement alternatives were discussed, project planner Jeff Williams was presented with a design plan. As the creator and builder of everything from fountains to greenhouses on the Perry Wellness Center campus, the professional designer and artist was up to the task.

Jeff describes the shelving need: “We are now working to offer unique and tasty products to our customers. The Stripling Farms line is diverse. We have to cool some products and can display other things they sell. I like to plan and construct displays for maximum product exposure.”

There’s a science as well as an art to creating and placing shelves. Customer traffic patterns must be considered, as well as air flow and potential draft areas as cooler weather approaches.

The photo above shows Jeff Williams, left, at work with market manager Charles Tanner. As Charles checks the products, Jeff “measures twice and cuts once” to ensure the perfect proportions for the new market shelving.
