The Perham Events Committee sponsors the "It Pays to Shop Perham" event in which unsuspecting shoppers are rewarded with gift certificates or other items for supporting Perham businesses.

The committee's summer campaign is already underway, and they were out over the Memorial Day weekend looking for shoppers to surprise with rewards. Dale Wright, retired jeweler and long-time Perham businessman, is the chairman of this event.
