Alabama Clubs Thrive Doing Socially Distanced Service Projects in 2020  

Since the start of the new club year on July 1, 2020, clubs in the ADEC have "stepped up to the plate and hit a home run" with regards to serving Alabama communities during times of the COVID-19 pandemic.  ADEC clubs have learned how to hold in-person socially distant meetings safely and have mastered the art of conducting business meetings on the ZOOM platform. Mostly, our clubs have been finding a need in their communities and have been filling it! A host of programs of service including erection of Freedom Shrines by the Exchange Club of Irondale and the Exchange Club of Montgomery, packing Christmas shoeboxes for children by the Exchange Club of the Shoals (ADEC's newest club of the year!), earning the first National Service Award (NSA) in Alabama by the Exchange Club of Shelby County in early October and much more! We look forward to an inspiring and motivating ADEC Mid-Winter Conference in a safe and socially-distant environment on Jan. 30, 2021.  I hope you will join us! Also, our entire 2020 ADEC convention was recorded on ZOOM.  For fun, watch the 99th Annual ADEC Convention below. (click on note button in bottom right to turn on sound).

Thank you for all that you do for Exchange,
