The Perry Area Chamber has had a great summer. The last of the 2012 Friday Fest concerts was a huge success with the temperature staying below 100 degrees and Jason Walsmith and the Lamplighters playing some great tunes.
Thanks again to all the sponsors who made this event possible. A big thank you to the Dallas County Children’s Advocacy Council for once again sponsoring the inflatables for the kids this year. Friday Fest is a great, affordable family event due to the generosity of these kind people and businesses. We are already looking forward to next year’s concert series.
With the close of summer comes the start of school. Make sure to slow down and look for kids on bicycles, skateboards and walking. The Chamber would like to welcome the new teachers on board this year. Welcome to Perry! Make yourself at home! We look forward to another exciting school year and will be supporting as many events as possible. That means supporting our students in their academics and extracurricular activities as well. It’s a great way to sustain the quality of life we love about Perry. Supporting the events through attendance, admission and cheering are just a few ways to keep our community pride up. A successful school system makes for a successful business community. Come out and show our students we are proud of all their hard work and that we are here for them. Go Bluejays!
