Prison Ministry Thanks You Thanks to everyone who was able to contribute a 2021 calendar (or ten) to a collection for Monroe Correctional Center inmates who want them. Thanks to you, over 280 calendars were recently delivered to the prison chaplain for inmate use. The prison will make additional deliveries later in the year, so if you are still receiving, or have, 2021 calendars, look to the Herald for an announcement about collecting and delivering additional calendars in late February.
