Join the Assistant Warden on a tour of the Women’s Federal Correction Institute in Dublin. All attending must pass a security check. If you are interested in seeing the inside of a women’s prison, with the option of exiting at will, please contact Judy Lauper. Judy will send you a form to complete and return for clearance. Forms must be turned in by March 1 and the tour is limited to 20 members, so don’t delay!

233 Front Street (across from the Danville Library)
Ladies, This is so exciting. The associate warden of the Women’s Federal Correction Institute in Dublin (one of only three in the nation), Donna Davis, is coming to talk with us. She will address the education, rehabilitation, and training of women while they are incarcerated. You must come to hear this – find out the facts and fiction of TV shows and books. There will be time for questions, so bring yours!
Piper Kerman, the author of the book of that title, indicates that there are many more programs for men in prison than for women. Bring your questions along and come and listen at this rare opportunity to hear from an official of the prison system.
Serving homemade cinnamon rolls and other breakfast breads, along with fresh fruit, juice, coffee and tea.
