Decatur County Lions Club members enthusiastically engage in activities that can make a positive difference in the lives of our area’s children.  The BPS’s “Kids ‘n Kops Program” and the Club’s own “Buford’s Bears Project”, in which teddy bears are collected and donated to area first responders to give to child victims of traumatic situations, are examples of the ways in which the Club supports the community.

Club activities extend through all levels of International Lions Clubs.  For example, just recently, a check and a large collection of Buford’s Bears went to help Albany’s storm victims.   There are many needs to be met, the Decatur County Lions Club strives to be of assistance whenever possible.
