The Kohler Police Athletic League (KPAL) is a not-for-profit organization. Our mission is to combat community juvenile delinquency by providing support to local organizations, to foster and encourage in the youth of the community a spirit of loyalty and faith in the American tradition and institutions, and to promote educational effort and provide a better understanding between law enforcement officers and the youth of community and encouragement of good citizenship for all.
KPAL was organized in 1954. The original Charter stated that KPAL was organized to “police” the Village of Kohler during the Kohler Strike. Over the years, amendments have been made to the Charter. Presently membership includes past and present Village residents, School District residents, School choice families and Kohler Alumni.
KPAL generates funds by holding an annual Brat Fry each February, partnering with the Sheboygan Falls Lions for Oktoberfest each fall, and by members donating time for special events.
KPAL has supported and continues to support the following activities:
- Scholarships – one boy and one girl from Kohler High School Athletes who meet athletic and academic requirements.
- Kohler Boy Scouts – sponsoring organization – cover adult registration and awards cost. Pay for utilities and associated items for Scout House and provide help with special needs. Provide assistance in Eagle Scout Projects.
