Senior citizens and youngsters came together in Harrisburg on Saturday for the Annual Police Athletic League Harvest Festival. The Heinz Senior Center hosted the event.
Children enjoyed bobbing for apples, face painting and even a bounce house. PAL made sure no one went away hungry; they served roast pork and chicken dinners, plus grilled hot dogs and hamburgers.

The PAL program brings youth under the supervision and positive influence of a law enforcement agency. It expands public awareness about the role of a police officer and the reinforcement of values and attitudes.
