Georgia's First Lady visits Albany

June 11, 2003

Albany - Georgia's First Lady was seeing green on Wednesday - turtle green that is. The Governor's wife, Mary Perdue, got a first hand look at the Turtle Grove Play Park in downtown Albany.

She toured the park which is still in the first stage on construction. And, she commended Albany for starting a project funded and built by the community, rather than the state and local government. "Government can't do it all," said Mary Perdue. "The Turtle Grove Play Park is an excellent example of how the community, not the government, can make something great happen in Georgia. If we work together, so much more can be accomplished."

The First Lady watched a ballet of the Stone Soup, the story on which the Turtle Stew Campaign is based. And, she toured the future site of the River Center.
