In a collaborative effort between Hometown Heritage and Perry Historic Preservation Commission we wish to announce the nominee to be added to the Perry Wall of Witnesses located in Soumas Court in Perry. There were fifty-one very good nominations reviewed by Perry Historic Preservation Commission members. There were two confidential votes to limit the field of applications for this award. The 2017 Wall of Witnesses Recipient is Jim Walstrom.
Hometown Heritage and Perry Historic Preservation are currently planning an unveiling and a reception for a later date in the fall. It is our hope that the Perry Community will watch for the date and time of the unveiling and reception and also attend the event to honor this long time community leader.
We wish to thank each of you who participated in this project. Again, this year we are keeping the nomination applications received this year to add to the application we receive next year.
Hometown Heritage and Perry Historic Preservation proudly add James Walstrom to the Wall of Witnesses.
