Santa Barbara Police Activities League Youths to Celebrate End of Session wtih Golf Scramble

The Santa Barbara Police Activities League will be celebrating the end of the first session of golf on Monday, June 8 with a golf scramble at the Santa Barbara Golf Course.

PAL teamed up with the city golf course to provide an eight-week instructional golf session to underserved youth in the community. The youth worked weekly on the fundamentals of golf, including hitting, chipping and putting.

They will put their newly acquired skills to the test as they participate in a golf scramble with PAL board members and Santa Barbara police officers, providing an opportunity for them to learn golf etiquette and interact socially with prominent members of our community.

Expected participants include PAL board members John Dixon, Mark Magid and John Van Donge, PAL program officer Bryan Kerr and Police Chief Cam Sanchez.

PAL provides safe and educational after-school programs for middle school and high school students at the Twelve35 Teen Center, including specialty classes, tutoring and teen leadership development. PAL also provides summer camp resources for low income families collaborating with 12 nonprofits to provide one week of summer camperships. Summer class sessions begin June 22 at the PAL Twelve35 Teen Center.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
