DOC Participates in Annual Governor’s Picnics

The Department of Corrections maintained a display booth at the annual Governor’s Picnics in Anchorage, Palmer, Fairbanks and Juneau. The DOC booths featured displays of prisoner-grown produce (from Point Mackenzie Correctional Farm) and hand-crafted items from Palmer Correctional Center, Lemon Creek Correctional Center and Hiland Mountain Correctional Center. Thanks to input and assistance from numerous staff members, the booths were a success with a great deal of interaction with the community: from former prisoners to tourists from Australia.
