Kids-N-Kops visits Decatur Co. Lions Club

Published 4:50 pm Tuesday, November 6, 2018

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, October 2, 2018.

The Club enthusiastically supports the program wherein police officers work to foster trust and create a positive image of police in the eyes of our area’s youth.   Club members were very impressed by his update on progress made since his last visit.  Following the meeting, Club President Charlie Laing presented a check to Sergeant Cutchin and Billy Ward to help with the Saturday, November 3, Kids-N-Kops Fun Day at the Boat Basin. 

The weather co-operated and provided a clear, crisp autumn day for kids to see a helicopter, an ambulance, a police car and a fire truck.  They enjoyed hot dogs and other treats, and got to meet and play games with police officers.  Decatur County Lions 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.
