In November, the California State Prison-Los Angeles (LAC) hosted its annual Thanksgiving Basket Decoration Contest.  The baskets, along with the turkeys, hams and gift cards were donated to a local charity.

There were 11 entries in the competition, as well as, five donated baskets from the Employee Association.

The baskets were judged in five different categories.  Plant Operations won in the categories of Best in Show, Most Creative and Best Contents.  The Warden’s Office/Reentry won in the categories Most Original and Best Theme.
