Lightbulb PTO Quarterly - Archived Issues

The staff of PTO is proud to present the first issue of PTO Quarterly. This new venture will be a newsletter in an online format. It will be produced in both Word and PDF formats that you can read while online, download to your computer, and even print to send a copy to your loved one. Infact we are hoping many members will share this with their incarcerated loved ones to give them a feel for what PTO is all about and to encourage them to spread the word as well.

Attached you will find the Spring 2013 edition of PTO Quarterly. As the name suggests it is our intention to publish the newsletter four times a year to mark the beginning of each new season. Spring has arrived!

This first edition gives you a glimpse of what to expect in future editions. We have a few plans for the Summer edition and look forward to producing a newsletter that is both informative and fun for everyone to read.

Many thanks to participating staff for making our introductory edition a reality. We are sure our members will appreciate the effort.

Feedback is welcome.

Thumbs up PTO Quarterly Newsletter Summer 2013 Edition

The long awaited second edition of PTO Quarterly Newsletter has arrived!!!


We are proud to announce that in this edition we start a new tradition of bringing our readers “Inside Extra” a new section also available as a stand-alone document for printing purposes. Inside Extra is dedicated to our incarcerated friends and family members and contains resources specific to those who are currently serving time.

This issue also features song lyrics from a member’s incarcerated son, staff member spotlight, PTO Quarterly regular contributors, and a few member selections as well. We also have been sponsored via advertising of interest to those with incarcerated loved ones.

You will notice that the word documents are paired down for easier printing. You can print the entire newsletter or just the Inside Extra section. The “snazzy” PDF version is recommended for downloading or reading online, although it can be printed but will use a great deal of ink.


Grab yourself a copy at the end of this post and enjoy courtesy of PTO!!!

Your feedback is most welcome…

Patty and Rachel

As a special treat we also want to share with you our PTO Xmas Recipes.
Make sure you check out a very, merry contribution from David (the founder of PTO).

Once again, thanks to all who took the time to send us their recipes.
We will be making these over the holidays at PTO H.Q. (especially David's favourite!)

Have fun with these and "Happy Cooking"!

This is great, my son loves the news letter and so do I, the poem by William Ray made me cry, and I hope it does so to my son, it was very touching. Thank you so much for all your hard work.

I cannot say this loud enough or enough times: If anyone knows of any resource, whether it be local to you or international, Please, please, please let any Moderator know about it and that you'd like to see the resource included in a future edition of PTO Quarterly.

This newsletter is for you and your loved one's benefit....to help you both pass the time and to give you ideas/resources to enable you both to live outside the walls.

We are now accepting submissions for the Summer Edition of PTOQ.

Please submit any poems, articles or suggestions to me in a Private Message and I will put if forward to the editorial committee.

We want to hear from you and your incarcerated loved ones!
Don't be shy, send something for the newsletter; others would love to hear your voice.

You know you have a great newsletter when inmates keep asking my guy to make sure he gets the next issue.

They have been passing around the copy I sent him many months ago along with the latest one just a few months ago and it is a very big hit with the inmates. They actually have a waiting list of who gets to read it next.

I noticed that we have more prior inmates that are getting out and getting involved in PTO. It would be nice if one of them would put something in the next newsletter about things they have found that help them make the transition from prison life to real life and things they have found that made things worse.

Talking PTO Quarterly Summer Edition 2014

We are pleased to announce that the Summer Edition of PTO Quarterly is here!

This is a huge issue, with lots of amazing content.
We are deeply grateful to all those that have sent us articles and items for inclusion. We had to give it a good, hard squeeze to get everything safely inside!


Attached are the different versions of the publication; as per usual, it is split into two parts.
  1. The first section includes articles of interest to our members dealing with the issues of having a loved one in prison. It also includes updates and information about the PTO community
  2. Inside Extra - this is a dedicated section for those incarcerated. It can be printed and sent as a stand-alone publication.

The files listed below are
Part One (view online)
Part One (printable)
Part Two - Inside Extra (view online)
Part Two - Inside Extra (printable)

If you would like to see the whole publication (and only want to view it online) you can download it from DropBox:
http://alturl.com/5gd7j

Parts one and two combined were just too big for us to upload in a post, so we are hosting the full version remotely.
You do not need to be a member to download from DropBox.

We hope that you enjoy our latest edition, we would love to hear your feedback.
We are also keen to include more material, poems, articles, artwork etc. from our members and their incarcerated loved ones.
Just contact any member of staff for more details on how to submit a piece of work for consideration.


Happy Reading!!

The PTO Admins and PTO Quarterly Editorial Team.

I echo Rachel's sentiments! A big shout out to the staff, members, and incarcerated supporters who contributed their time and talent to make the Summer 2014 (it's our one year anniversary!) edition of PTO Quarterly the best ever!
