LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER/FIREFIGHTER OF THE YEAR
This program is designed to honor men and women who serve as law enforcement officers or firefighters. It is most successful when done with the cooperation of local law enforcement agencies and the fire department. These resources can help you establish the criteria by which outstanding performance of duty or an especially kind or helpful act is publicly recognized. Your club serves as the magnifying glass which enables the public to see a clearer view of what law enforcement and firefighting work is all about.
Selections should be made by a committee which not only includes Exchangites, but also high ranking civic and social leaders. When the selections are made, a detailed written explanation of the reasons as well as a biographical profile of the honorees should be distributed to the local news media. Every attempt should be made to publicize the selection and award presentations as widely as possible.
The award can be in the form of a gift (an engraved wrist watch, U.S. Savings Bond, etc.) and/or Law Enforcement Officer/Firefighter of the Year Award Medallions and Plaques, available from the National Headquarters Supply Department.- See more at: http://www.nationalexchangeclub.org/crime-and-fire-prevention

Community service is the lifeline of Exchange. Exchange Clubs across the country spend countless hours and dollars improving their communities each year. In fact, many of the projects within the Program of Service have a common goal of serving and benefiting communities.
The history of Exchange’s Community Service projects is quite impressive. Since the first group of Exchangites convened in 1911 in Detroit, Michigan, Exchange has been dedicated to serving its communities. Throughout the years, Exchange Clubs have been responsible for community endeavors of all types such as, cleaning up highways, sponsoring cultural programs, hosting art and industrial shows, holding state and county fairs and festivals, and organizing rodeos and athletic events. Exchange Clubs have also provided millions of dollars for scholarships, gifts, equipment, sponsorships, educational assistance, and other worthy causes.- See more at: http://www.nationalexchangeclub.org/programs-of-service
ONE NATION UNDER GOD
Americans are bound together by their love of freedom, and religion is no exception. The Noon Exchange Club of Murfreesboro and the Exchange Club of Murfreesboro host a "One Nation Under God" Community Prayer breakfast, annually, on Tuesday before Thanksgiving.
The ticketed in advance event serves a breakfast buffet starting at 6:30 a.m. and the program between is from 7-8 a.m.
The "One Nation Under God" project was adopted on July 30, 1964, by Exchange leaders seeking to heighten awareness of our rich religious heritage. November, observed nationally as "One Nation Under God Month." is a special time of year when Exchangites join together to increase public appreciation of the important roles religious faith and freedom have played in our nation's history.
The Exchange Clubs of Murfreesboro along with nearly 900 other Exchange Clubs across the nation, recognizes November as "One Nation Under God" month.
This powerful program not only aims to increase appreciation of our rich religious heritage, but also seeks to remind Americans that we must always trust in a higher power for guidance, protection and strength. The famous words of the program's title are, of course, taken from the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag. "One Nation Under God" Month is observed annually during November.
The national program, "One Nation Under God", was created to help promote that America is truly "One Nation Under God." As a nation, citizens should be deeply conscious of the importance of our religious freedom in the nation's heritage and future.
