Our News - 5Jun08 - Judy Helms is Retiring - As most of you know, Judy Helms the Community Services Director at the Plainfield ReEntry Educational Facility (PREF) is retiring the end of this month.  Sixteen of her present and past office clerks (PREF Residents) put on a Goodbye Luncheon for her today.  Apparently Kentucky Fried Chicken is one of her favorite lunch foods so they had some flown in from the KFC in Plainfield.  Some of them had to keep her busy while while the rest of them set things up in the Deli area.  They were all very grateful for the time she has spent with them over the last few months and they told her so.  It was a very touching event for a lady that deserves a successful retirement.  She has been a great asset to Superintendent Lloyd, the staff at PREF, and especially the PREF Residents.  She will be missed by us all.  Don Hawkins - Click here to view pictures
