Austin PAL Summer Show Part 1 words and photos licensed to participants only Esteban Erik Stipnieks




Change a child's life and change the world.  Be a father to the fatherless and offer a young woman a positive adult female role model and the potential in misery avoided is staggering.  Austin PAL (they are on facebook) is Austin Police Department preventing crime.  Due to early arrival I got to meet a couple of the Police officers involved....Cathy Haggerty, and the person shooting photographs for PAL and Phil who I already know.  You would have to be both foolish and heartless not to cheer on their efforts.  One is a former Peace Corps member.  As I write this a smile is on my face.  Austin PAL has a week long boxing clinic which has a smoker at its end.  The boxing program is featured but the explorer post is also heavily involved I witnessed part of the take down process after the show...the kids learned even valuable life lessons team work and service in that.


  learning poise part of the PAL program!
