May 17, 2016

A nearly 15-month effort on behalf of the Perry Branding Committee, a group of 10 community leaders representing various organizations in Perry, has culminated in a very exciting, sustainable, versatile and, most importantly, true community brand that represents who we are as a community and our promise to those who live in Perry, conduct business Perry, and visit Perry. Perry, Georgia truly is “Where Georgia Comes Together.” Tremendous efforts have been made exploring, researching, designing, developing, etc. a brand that not only expresses who we are as a community but distinguishes Perry from other places. We as a community must own our role of being the place where Georgia, and the people passing through or visiting Georgia, comes together.
