Each Club has a goal to make their community a better place to live.

How we support the four pillars of service

Prevention of Child Abuse: Clubs work with National Exchange and local organization to inform the general public about Child Abuse Prevention. Clubs donate time, service, and Funds to non- profit organizations to Prevent Child Abuse.

Americanism: The Americanism Program of Service promotes pride in our country, appreciation for the freedoms granted to American citizens, and gratitude to the men and women who serve/have served in the Armed Forces. Americanism celebrates the country’s rich, unique heritage and inspires unity from coast-to-coast.

Youth:  Clubs awards college scholarships, mentoring and guidance, and service recognition, Exchange is making a difference for America’s youngest generations.

Community: Community Service is the Program of Service that allows clubs to identify opportunities within their communities and offer assistance to fill gaps in services.

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 ...
