NOTE: Officers took several students from Santa Clara, Wilcox, New Valley and Wilson High Schools on a fishing trip today in the San Francisco Bay. The trip was sponsored by the Santa Clara Police Activities League (P.A.L.).
This experience between the kids and police officers is unique! It includes teaching the life skill of fishing, interaction throughout the day on issues faced by teens in their home and school environments as well as gaining a healthy respect for the environment and the Bay. An added bonus - the fishing was a success and the weather was ideal.
The P.A.L. fishing program, offered twice a year, is made possible as a result of fundraising events and community support throughout the year. For more information, contact P.A.L. at (408)615-4880.
