Civitans Support Bo Bikes Bama

Auburn Civitans provided a rest stop for participants in the annual Bo Bikes Bama April 27. Over 1,000 cyclists rode in the event this year. About 700 of them did the 60–mile route, including the Civitan rest stop.

Each year, Bo hopes to inspire Alabamians and people across the country to lend their neighbors a helping hand. Money raised by Bo Bikes Bama goes to support the Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund, specifically providing funds for the construction of community storm shelters across the state.

This year was especially relevant because of the March tornados that hit communities in Lee County.

Smoked Turkeys and Hams for Thanksgiving

Auburn Civitans smoked about 200 turkeys and hams November 17–18 for the biggest fund-raiser of the year. This project has supported our service projects and charities ever since 1968.




Over a dozen turkeys and hams were donated to the Community Market, a program of the Food Bank of East Alabama. The Civitans support this program and the Food Bank throughout the year.
