First Annual Lemon Creek Easter Egg Hunt

The Alaska Department of Corrections Lemon Creek Correctional Center Wellness Committee held their First Annual Family Easter Egg Hunt at Twin Lakes playground in Juneau this past weekend.

They had a spectacular turnout where over fifty children and their families searched for Easter eggs in the time honored tradition.

The LCCC Wellness Committee, led by President Lydia O’Leary, spent an entire week loading over 1,100 eggs with candy and toy surprises!

The event was very well received and there are already plans being made for next year.

Lydia O’Leary would like to give a special “Thank You” to Ron Shriver, Bonnie Webster, Mary Ann Headings, Virginia Behrends, Bob Cordle, Evgenia Golofeeva, Regan Tweedy, Kenneth Hoff, Travis Brososky, Keith Brososky Jr, and of course all the family and friends who came out to enjoy the fun.

Thank You Chaplain Duncan!

A Big Thank You to Chaplain Reverend James Duncan who recently was part of several outreach efforts that positively impacted Anvil Mountain Correctional Center.

Chaplain Duncan delivered Anvil Mountain Correctional Center 23 Bibles donated by the Baxter Road Bible Church in Anchorage, AK.

This charitable donation from the Church replenished our low Bible supply. Chaplain Duncan is also networking and finding a replacement for our local Chaplain that recently resigned. All of his efforts are during a personal visit to Nome. This type of dedication and kindness is greatly appreciated.

We appreciate you Chaplain Duncan!
