Theresa Palka, of Bellaire, is pictured with her new 10-foot Sun Dolphin Aruba kayak, which was delivered to her free of charge last Friday morning by KL Outdoor of Muskegon, after a customer service representative for the company saw her mother’s post on Facebook about the theft of her daughter’s Sun Dolphin kayak, which was stolen on June 20, Palka’s 25th birthday.

BELLAIRE – It was mid-morning on June 20, Theresa Palka’s 25th birthday, when she looked out the window of her Fourth Street home in downtown Bellaire and realized that her kayak was no longer in the backyard.
