PAL Santa Day – Saturday December 13th

The Frederick Police Activities League is pleased to announce that the Rotary Club of Carroll Creek will be hosting the 3rd Annual PAL Santa Day. This event is to provide underprivileged children in the Sagner community in Frederick, an opportunity to create a special Christmas by making crafts, choosing gifts and wrapping gifts for their caregivers.

This event will take place on Saturday December 13th from 11am – 2pm in the PAL building located at 111 Pennsylvania Avenue. Members of the Rotary Club of Carroll Creek are generously volunteering their time and generously contributing gift items for the occasion.

The PAL Program is but one aspect of the Department’s multi-faceted, progressive approach to policing in our community in general, and reaching out to the City’s youth specifically.

The Police Activities League of Frederick (PAL) began in August of 1999, and is a recreation-oriented juvenile crime prevention program that relies heavily upon athletics and recreational activities to create and cement the bond between police officers and the kids on the street. During the school year the PAL program is offered in the evenings at the PAL Center in the Sagner Community and at Hillcrest Elementary School. PAL offers kids a safe nurturing place to learn and interact with the police officers all while having a good time.

For more information please contact Michele Bowman, Community Outreach Coordinator at 301-600-2091.
