For the past 10 years, the Inmate Activities Committee (IAC) purchased flowers for the men to give to their loved ones as they visit on Valentine's Day. This year the men were able to present red and pink long-stemmed carnations to their family member as they came into the visiting room.
This event is popular at the facility, and the men look forward to it each year. They have expressed that being able to give a flower to their loved one as they visit them on Valentine's Day gives them an opportunity to show their gratitude for the continued support they receive from their loved one.
Superintendent Melinda Adams said "Not only is this uplifting for both the men and their loved ones on Valentine's Day, this gesture of thoughtfulness also helps to bond the family together."
