Check out the Exchange Club of Columbus! What is your Club doing? Please let us know.The Exchange Club of Columbus held their second Youth of the Year Program. Students honored were: Schnoria Taylor, Carver High School; Cheqebah Arnold, Jordan High School; and Silas Diehl, Rainey-McCullers School of the Arts.The student essays were outstanding and discussed how COVID impacted their lives and the community. Here are a few keys points: They found empathy for others due to sickness, some lost loved ones, and others lost their job. They learned to appreciate being in school and the classroom setting with in-person teachers and classmates. They found learning in virtual classes more difficult and with more distractions.. Some became depressed and distanced themselves from family. Another found a love for music. They all learned valuable lessons about isolation and turned the negative impact into positive. Pictured with the students are Cleophus Hope and Jennifer Allen, Program coordinators. ... See MoreSee Less

See the great meeting at the Exchange Club of Rome!TERRIFIC program at the Exchange Club of Rome. It was a real eye opener. Misty Pledger, with the Floyd County Police Department, specializes in working crimes against children...especially on the Internet. It was really scary to learn how predators from states far away try to lure young teen girls in Floyd County into meeting them for sexual purposes. This lady knows what she is doing and her arrest and conviction rate is wonderful. Misty is also part of a GBI task force that works around the state to snap up predators in the act of trying to entice children for sexual purposes. Her works fits right into the National project of Exchange, the Prevention of Child Abuse. ... See MoreSee Less

The Exchange Club of Albany was pleased to have Sheriff Kevin Sproul at our weekly meeting on One Nation Under God. He thanked the Exchange Club for Honoring and Supporting local law enforcement in many different way. He discussed where this Country has veered off track and how we need to continue to support local law enforcement and support our Country. He also gave credit to God and the support of the Community.The Exchange Club's One Nation Under God Program:ONE NATION UNDER GOD This powerful program not only aims to increase appreciation of our rich religious heritage, but also seeks to remind Americans that we must always trust in a higher power for guidance, protection and strength. The famous words of the program's title are, of course, taken from the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag. One Nation Under God Month is observed annually during November. Exchange Clubs can implement this program in a variety of worthwhile ways, such as organizing community-wide prayer breakfasts, distributing pamphlets describing the American Flag's history and proper flag etiquette, sponsoring One Nation Under God essay or poster contests in schools and encouraging attendance at religious services.The Sheriff also took a few minutes to explained that under Georgia law under O.C.G.A. 15-61-1 which is assigned four specific duties. The are 1. Maintain Peace 2. Protect Life, 3. Protect Property and 4. Provide services to the Community. Under each of these is a number of activities the Sheriff's Office must provide.Thank you to Sheriff Sproul for an excellent program and also the excellent job he has done for many years. ...

NEWS FROM MACON EXCHANGE CLUBSheriff David Davis, was the guest Speaker/Presenter at our meeting w/the “State of the Sheriff’s Department” address and celebrating with the Exchange Club’s annual presentation of the “Law Enforcement Officer of the Year”.Sheriff Davis has been a member of the Exchange Club of Macon since 2001 and a “staunch” supporter of all Club events.Sheriff Davis began his remarks with his “State of the Sheriff’s Department” by stating “in one word, the Sheriff’s Department’s state is ENCOURAGING as we move forward”. The Law Enforcement Center facility is over “41” years old and in need of retrofitting, repair, maintenance, and expansion. It is ENCOURAGING that we have been working on the LEC for improvement in the facility as well as in more up-to-date technical equipment and procedures to better handle an investigate crime in Middle Georgia. One of the areas of new technology implementation is “Shock Spotter” (a new tool in our box), is designed to pin point the location of weapon discharges, as well as the type pf weapon, in the currently areas of Macon-Bibb in which the equipment has been deployed. This will enable us to be more proactive in gun violence prevention in Macon-Bibb County. Warren Shelby with Macon Regional Crime Stoppers has been instrumental in helping the department with the assessment and identifying needs within the physical facility and with technological improvements.It is ENCOURAGING that we have been able to address the past issues of inmate overcrowding in the jail.It is ENCOURAGING that we have been positively dealing with the COVID Pandemic and have had very few positive COVID cases within our staff as well as in the inmate population.It is ENCOURAGING that we acquired the old Macon rescue Mission Property downtown and converted it to house all of the Sheriff Department’s outreach programs. The facility is now noted as our “Justice Center”.It is ENCOURAGING that we have multiple partnerships that we support and maintain with local, state, and federal law enforcement organizations, as well community leaders, and the citizens we serve. We are still short staffed in many departments but it is ENCOURAGING that steps have been implemented to help relieve the situation – age limits for hiring and training new deputies has been lowered to “18” (the new deputies will be close to “21” by the end of all of the training necessary to get the new deputy “on the road”) – part time officers from other law enforcement agencies hired to supplement our full time deputies in the LEC freeing up deputies for the “road”.Sheriff Davis began his remarks with his “State of the Sheriff’s Department” by stating “in one word, the Sheriff’s Department’s state is ENCOURAGING as we move forward”.

For October, the ladies were busy collecting snacks, canned goods, sheets, and clothing for veterans in transitional housing at “Homeport Macon”. Pictured: Exchangette President Jan Jones and John and Barbara Vasquez with Coats for Homeport.Major George Brown (pictured left) received a hysterical call from the daughter of a friend of “40” years – “Dad just shot himself”. The call, a sad trip to Mississippi, a funeral, and a lot of questions led Major Brown to do a lot of research into PTSD and veteran suicides. His research evolved into an idea to help veterans with PTSD and suicidal issues. Further research led to the understanding that qualifying veterans needed support, professional help, and some avenue to regain their lives in society. Born from his deliberations was action to create transitional housing situations for the veterans through which they could receive necessary assistance. Putting together a team of partners, “Homeport Veterans Transitional Home” came to fruition. You can learn more about “Homeport” at their web site homeportmaconga.org Pictured: Major George Brown ...
