Thanks to the help of Alabama Tom RC&D, the Conecuh County Jr. Cattlemen were able to purchase a portable set of bleachers that will be used from year to year. These bleachers which have the extra wide foot, side rails and even a middle rail that will allow all spectators an opportunity to enjoy the Pig, Chicken, Goat, and Steer and Heifer Show. Because these bleachers are portable, this will allow them to be transported to different events, regardless of the location.
The crime rates in the City of Butler need to decrease, and the police department lacks the updated technology to expand their safety resources. This grant would help purchase reliable dashboard cameras that will document each police officer’s public safety situation. Currently, the police department owns four cameras that hold an insufficient amount of data storage compared to the extent necessary. The police department needs upgraded dashboard cameras to provide high-definition recordings for documenting public interaction, officer training, public safety, and the overall reassurance for the community.
The project was safety driven, we are in the rebuilding phase of our department and we are trying to get needed equipment to better prepare us to offer services to our community. We were able to purchase 3 AED’s to place on our trucks and a the station should we encounter someone in cardiac arrest.
Project funs were used to make repairs to the Broadhead Memorial Park Pavilion and log cabin.
The park is used by many for school trips, birthday parties, family reunions, and other community events.
The SCHS FFA is dedicated to helping students reach their full potential in premiere leadership, personal growth, and career success. This year, the SCHS FFA hosted a BOOT (Building Occupational Opportunities for Tomorrow) camp for seniors to help them get more prepared and more confident in being college or career ready. After gaining knowledge from attending the National FFA Convention, FFA members and officers collaborated with partners from the ALFA, Georgia Pacific, International Paper, Coastal Alabama Community College, and other in the community to host hands on training with practice and feedback in the areas of communications, teamwork, resume writing, social media use, and interviewing.
