THANK YOU: 2018 Barber Conable Award

Perry's Official Book is Henry Loves Hills

Henry Loves Hills is Perry's official book written by Perry native Patrick E. Brennan in response to a competition organized by Read Around Perry, a Rotary-initiated community literacy program with support from the Town of Perry Bicentennial Committee in 2014. It tells the story of a school bus, named Henry, who negotiates the beautiful rolling hills of Perry bringing children to and from school everyday.

Henry, and driver Ed, confront and overcome their biggest challenge taking readers on a trip through a major snow storm. Sally Snowplow helps out. 

Brennan, who graduated from PCS, based Henry Loves Hills on his experience of a bus ride during the infamous Blizzard of 1977. Dan Butler, a Village of Perry resident and 2015 Perry Chalk Art Festival featured artist, is the illustrator.

A Recreation Destination

Letchworth State Park has a Perry entrance, just east of downtown. The "Grand Canyon of the East" was voted the #1 State Park in the US in 2015, and includes spectacular 500-feet deep gorges carved out by prehistoric glaciers and the north-flowing Genesee River. There are trails for hiking, biking, walking, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing, guided nature activities, canoing and kayaking, camping facilities, cabins, and a historic restaurant and Inn.

Silver Lake, southwest of downtown, is not just home to the legendary sea serpent, but is also a popular destination for boaters, fishermen, and visitors. Along the water's edge, the Silver Lake Institute contains hundreds of year-round residents, many living in a dense, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood filled with historic East lake Victorian cottages.

Near the Institute are an art gallery, several performance halls, a public dock and beach, and the historic Pioneer Grounds (a living museum). Other nearby amenities include a campground, several marinas, a country club and restaurant, and the Charcoal Corral/Silver Lake Twin Drive-In, a popular seasonal establishment. At the south end of Silver Lake lies Silver Lake State Park, a natural retreat with a boat launch. What's missing? Perhaps just you!
