Kids-N-Kops visits Decatur County Lions Club

Sergeant David Cutchin of Bainbridge Public Safety and coordinator of the Kids-N-Kops Program was the keynote speaker at the Decatur County Lions Club meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2018.

The Club generously supports the program where police officers work to foster trust and create a positive image of police in the eye of the youth.

"Club members were very impressed by his update on progress made since his last visit," according to The Post Searchlight.

Club president Charlie Laing presented a check to Sergeant Clutchin and Billy Ward to help with the Saturday, Nov. 3, Kids-N-Kops Fun Day at the Boat Basin.

The weather pulled together and provided a clear, lovely autumn day. Kids got to see a helicopter, an ambulance, a police car and a fire truck.

They enjoyed hot dogs and other treats, and they also got to meet and play many fun games with the police officers. Decatur County Lions Club also participated in the festivities by making popcorn and cotton candy for the attendees.

Club members working at the event were Lions Bill and Sheri Allen, Charlie and Grace Laing, Chuck and Carol Lewis, and Hardy Powell.

Functions like these showcase how organizations can work together for the good of the community.

"The Decatur County Lions Club were honored to help support the Kids-N-Kops program and to have been involved with this event. Other organizations are encouraged to consider participating in this very important effort," stated The Post Searchlight.
