VLH ENTERPRISES INC.
P.O. BOX 111
LEAVITTSBURG, OHIO 44430
(330) 898-7963

I heard this advertisement for a shuttle service to OHIO Prisons. I called and spoke to a representative there at “The Family Connection” (TFC). She was kind enough to fax me details about this service. It goes as follows:

Transportation schedule is very flexible for the month of December. You should always call to check for open dates and facilities already scheduled. Also, The Family Connection (TFC), are in the process of setting up their web site so that people will be able to make a reservation on line and view TFC’s monthly calendar.

Because a very generous Doctor from Mahoning County blessed the service with a donation, they are offering a $10 discount for any adult fare for the month of December. TFC has also reserved several dates for Ohio Reformatory in Marysville during Christmas break so that children can visit their mothers without missing any school. Let’s pray that the weather cooperates.

Those dates for Ohio Reformatory for Women in Marysville are:
WED. DEC 22nd,
THURS. DEC. 23rd,
MON. DEC 27th,
TUES, Dec 28TH, and
WED. DEC 29th if needed

TFC also has service currently scheduled for:

LAKE ERIE (LaECI) for THURS. DEC. 16th

MANSFIELD for FRI. DEC. 17th.

TFC’s official opening, media photo session, and ribbon cutting service, sponsored by the Regional Chamber is scheduled for Wednesday December 16th at the Warren Urban League at 4:00 p.m. Please feel free to attend and invite your friends, family, and associates from Prison Talk on Line (PTO).
