PAL promises fun, at the right price

“Positive” recreation when school’s out

Express Staff Writer

The Blaine County Sheriff's Office is once again offering free activities this summer through the Police Activities League Summer Outdoor Activities 2012.

The organization, more commonly referred to as PAL, is offering geocaching, fishing, hiking, swimming, camping, bowling, rafting, dinner-movie combos, baseball games, 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, kids 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 Tuesday, June 12, with a dinner and movie combo package. On Wednesday, June 13, a hiking-geocaching outing is planned. Swimming at Hagerman is set for Thursday, June 14, and fishing day is planned for Friday, June 15.

Each week through the summer is filled with similar adventures for youngsters.

PAL activities last until Aug. 19 with the final event being an all-day trip to Redfish Lake.

There is no charge for any event, but registration 10 days in advance of an event is required.

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