What DECA Does...

DECA has various goals from year to year.  Stopping crime, re-beautification of the neighborhoods within the community along with the parks, and working with the city to get the changes needed in our community put to the forefront of their agendas.  2017 is no different.  Our main goals are:

  • Contributing time and funds to making Buford Highway beautiful.
  • Creating a Safety Committee.
  • DECA dog tags to incorporate the neighborhood pets.

These are just some of the main highlights we're working on and want you to be a part of it!

You might be thinking, “How do I get involved?"  Well, it's pretty simple!  Become a member.  There are multiple ways to become a member too.  You can sign up at our next quarterly meeting.  You can turn in the membership form in the DECAzette, or you can become a member here.  By doing so and contributing $20 (the price of one soft drink monthly), you are helping the ultimate cause of making where WE live a better place.
