PCYC Taree's annual Time 4 Kids event saw community leaders spend time 'behind bars' to raise funds for much needed equipment and programs.
This week's Our History, Our Memories gallery includes photos from the event between 2011 and 2014.
Each year, people would be locked up in a makeshift prison cell in Taree City Centre (now Taree Central) to 'do time and keep kids out of crime'.
Each person would apply for 'bail' which would be used to fund the programs and equipment.
Over the years, some of the 'inmates' included now MidCoast Council mayor David West, 2RE announcer Anthony Zanos and newsreader Peter Denton, businessmen Graham Brown and Alan Tickle and comedian Andy Saunders.
Visit the Manning River Times website at 6pm every Wednesday to view the latest gallery in the series.
