Wyoming prison supports volunteer faith-based organizations, including Druid

The Star-Herald (Scottsbluff, Nebraska) reported that the new Wyoming Medium Correctional Institution
Torrington, WY.) is teaming up with its host community in more ways
than one.  The article indicates that, "
Among the many religions and volunteer faith-based organizations
represented are American Indian, Baptist, Catholic, Islamic/Muslim,
Jewish, Mennonite and Wiccan/Druid. A sweat lodge is also under

It is always wonderful to see alternate religions included with mainstream religions in the prison systems.  So often Druids and other alternative practitioners are disenfranchised.  I'll be interested to see or hear how the Wiccan/Druid practitioners do at WMCI.
