Kudos and Kindness: PAL Bike Club thanks Meek’s

The South Lake Tahoe Police Activities League (PAL) Bike Club would like to thank Meek’s Lumber & Hardware for their generous donation of materials needed to build a bike storage rack at the Boys & Girls Club. A big thank you also goes to Ray Fernsten, Starbuck Teevan and Kenny Groen, who all dedicated their time in building the bike racks, and for their commitment to helping youth in our community stay focused on their strengths while abstaining from drugs, alcohol and other at risk behaviors.

The PAL Bike Club repairs used bikes which have been donated by the South Lake Tahoe Police Department impound. The bike club consists of mainly underprivileged youth who are focusing on their strengths and showing commitment to make healthy choices. Participants in the bike club learn life skills as well as how to refurbish a bicycle. Participants may earn to keep a bike after they show their commitment and participation in the bike club as well as maintaining good grades at school. The PAL Bike Club would not be where it is today without the help from this community and its members. Thank You.
