    Did you know?

    By Larry Vodenik,


    Did you know... what is happening in this photo and where it was taken? This photo was taken at Lake Robbins at the wake for the death of the Milwaukee Railroad in 1980. This was a time for our community to show support for all the railroad families who were about to be out of work. We have been through this happening to our town several times. Our city has stepped up with job fairs and reaching out to possible buyers for Tyson. This has been a very tough year for Perry, but we are Perry Strong. Now is the time we all need to support local businesses and the jobs they provide.
