Governor Bentley to Visit Perry County Friday

Posted: Updated:

Governor Robert Bentley will visit Perry County on Friday to participate in an open house for the county's first dialysis center and to continue his Road to Economic Recovery Tour.

The open house for the Perry County Dialysis Center is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m.  The new DaVita Dialysis facility, which is expected to open soon, will give patients a local option for dialysis, helping patients avoid the up to 100-mile round trips currently necessary for dialysis at out-of-town facilities.

Also, at approximately 10:45 a.m., Governor Bentley is scheduled to begin a tour of the Marion Military Institute.  Governor Bentley will meet with school leaders and cadets and will visit various facilities on campus.  The Marion Military Institute is one of five Military Junior Colleges in the United States and prepares young men and women for military and civilian careers.

At Noon, Governor Bentley will have a lunch hour visit with local residents at Lottie's Restaurant.  Lottie's is a family-owned business that has served the people of Perry County since 2005.

The Road to Economic Recovery Tour routinely visits counties across the state as Governor Bentley visits with local residents and leaders to discuss various issues, including economic development, education and more.
