The Perry Main Street Advisory Board’s Memorial Bench Program in downtown Perry not only honors and remembers loved ones, but also funds an innovative grant program for downtown merchants and business owners. The program is available to area residents, organizations and businesses as a way to honor or memorialize a friend, relative, graduating class or any other individual or group.  The cost to purchase a memorial bronze plaque is $500.  Two benches are available.  Call 478-988-2758 or email catherine.edgemon@perry-ga.gov.
