Family Day at Jacksonville Bridge

On Monday September 5, 2011 another successful Family Day was held at the Jacksonville Bridge.  In preparation for the event, inmates created and built a water balloon toss and a bean bag toss.  Approximately 100 inmates and many of their families and children participated in the event.  Staff not scheduled to work also came and joined in the festivities.  There was an array of games and activities designed for family unification and plain old fun.  The karaoke, spoon/egg race, water balloon toss and bean bag toss brought lots of smiles, laughter and joy to the participants, as well as the observers.  The hit of the day was the scavenger hunt.  Everyone seemed to rise to being a super sleuth and figuring it out.  No one left hungry as there was plenty of hot dogs, chips, soda, and snacks for all.  The children each received a snack bag with treats to take home.  A good time was had by all and comments lingered throughout the week on how this was the best family day ever!

Chaplain Tillman

For those of you who were on the moon, under a rock, or caught in bicycle traffic, Turning Point Bridge Chaplain, Willie Tillman orchestrated the first of our monthly "Spiritual Service" series on the back lawn. One could not help but move to the beats bumping out of the big white tent this past weekend. Praise performers were brought into our community from as far away as South Miami, rocking the crowd with everything from Soul, Hip-Hop to Rock. In memory of Sept. 11th, Chris Sharp delivered a reflective speech, touching all within earshot. With several guest speakers delivering a passionate message of salvation and change, this event set a new standard for fun in our community. Thanks goes out to all the volunteers who made this possible.
