Deb Mason gave the Binford House report. She noted that we will host an open house during the Holiday Stroll.
An informative program about B.A.C.A., Bikers Against Child Abuse, was presented by “Smoke,” “Jesse” and “Tigger” anonymous titles to protect their true identity.
This is a volunteer, non-paid organization that stands against all forms of child abuse, physical, sexual, emotional and child porn. When they receive a call they respond on their motorcycles to a location. Two anonymous members are assigned as the child’s primary contact and can accompany a child to court and parole hearings.
They host summer picnics and Christmas parties to brighten a child’s life. They are identified by a patch with B.A.C.A. across their backs and each child also gets a patch. A worker can be reached at 641-485-1261 to report a need in a child’s life.
