Perry is a great town to feel like you belong, make friends, and help those in your community. There are a plethora of baseball, basketball, and football games that need help with operating the concession stands. This is a great opportunity to meet new people, be a contributing member of the town, and to watch talent grow in the community. In addition to this, Perry has several churches, where you can grow in your faith and meet people with similar interests as you. Perry has an American Legion, a great place to work your volunteer skills, have community meals, and play Bingo. Lastly, Perry has beautiful campground sites perfect for nature-filled hikes, bike riding, and camping. Perry is a gorgeous town with plenty to do, whether you enjoy nature, sports, socializing, or volunteering.

I’ve gotten the small ton experience through my childhood. I’ve had the good and the bad things it’s the city, but I love this town with all my heart. Everybody knows everybody, which makes it a little hard to have privacy. Yet, everyone is willing to help anyone in need.
Perry is a very nice small town, with pleasant people. There aren't many businesses though, which i would like to see improve.
