Prison management took turns getting dunked.

California Correctional Center administrators celebrated their appreciation for staff employed throughout the institution, firehouse, and 18 northern fire camps by hosting a staff appreciation day for all to enjoy.

A disc jockey entertained employees by playing various songs, while they engaged in several games such as corn hole competitions, balloon games, karaoke and more.

Union Representatives, Supervisors, Managers, and Administrators sat in the dunk tank while staff took turns throwing softballs at a target and dunking them one by one into a large barrel of water.

Administrators served popcorn, snow cones, hamburgers and hotdogs to staff during the event as a way to show appreciation for their hard work and dedication to the department.

Numerous gifts were donated to the C.A.R.E. Foundation by various local businesses, and all staff employed at CCC whether on duty or not, including custody, non-custody, contract employees and camps were entered into a drawing to win the prizes.

Administrators also worked diligently throughout the night as they prepared breakfast burritos and delivered them to staff working first watch to ensure all staff were recognized.

People run at each other with inflated balloons.
