PAL promises summer fun, at no charge

Police Activities League offers ‘positive’ recreation

The Blaine County Sheriff's Office is once again offering free activities this summer through the Police Activities League Summer Outdoor Activities 2011.

The organization, more commonly referred to as PAL, is offering golfing, fishing, hiking, swimming, camping, bowling, rafting and a host of other fun things to do from June through August.

The program is open to youngsters 9-16, but for rafting trips, they need to be at least 12.

The purpose of PAL is to get kids involved in fun, positive recreational activities to help steer them away from negative activities such as consumption of alcohol, street gangs and illegal drugs.

This summer's PAL events kick off on Monday, June 13, with a dinner and movie combo package.

Lots of other great events follow, such as golf competitions, swimming and fishing outings, basketball camps, rafting and hiking excursions, rodeo, baseball games and pretty much whatever else kids like to do in the summer.

PAL activities last until Aug. 19. Participation is free, but participants need to register for events 10 days in advance.

For more information or to register for events, call 788-7080.
