Coach Rose with Wrestlers

The Albany Community Center was filled with young people and their families on Sunday, March 30, as the Albany Police Activities League (APAL) celebrated another successful year at their annual Recognition Dinner.  After everyone had their fill of pizza, salad, and cake, the coaches and instructors of each APAL program spoke briefly about their specific activity and presented their participants with certificates. Lt. Daniel Adams of the Albany Police served as Master of Ceremonies with other members of the Police Department on hand to assist with the raffle and help in the kitchen.
