Exchange Clubs throughout America adopt various projects to support their communities and raise funds for worthwhile endeavors such as the Prevention of Child Abuse. The Exchange Club of Bellevue is no different. Some are planned months in advance while others occur based on our community’s immediate needs.
Volunteers are welcome! Contact us if you, your family, or organization would like to volunteer for a project.
BELLEVUE CLEAN-UP DAY
The Exchange Club of Bellevue organizes two clean-up days each year. The club’s OSHA certified volunteers supervise small work groups who are assigned beautification projects throughout the Bellevue community to pick up trash, remove graffiti, and perform other services as needed. Previous clean-ups have included the following services and were available to Bellevue residents free-of-charge: rolling bins for bulk items, shredding, Goodwill Services, Emissions Testing, and more.
Contact us if you or your organization would like to take part in our next Bellevue Clean-Up Day.

Approximately 14 middle schools from the surrounding area to include our own Bellevue Middle School are given the opportunity to scrimmage prior to the beginning of the football season. In addition, a Student Athlete award is given to an outstanding athlete from each team.Donations for advertising are solicited to create a program book which is sold at the games. All profits benefit the Bellevue Exchange Club Foundation to include the Exchange Club Family Centers for the prevention of child abuse and neglect.

DONALD W. JOHNSON MEMORIAL GARDEN
Don and Kay’s lifetime commitment and contributions to public education and the beautification of Bellevue attest to their passion for their community.
Donald was a contractor by profession but he built more than just homes; he built communities. Many of the more successful community initiatives, such as the “Welcome to Bellevue” beautification project, the Community Announcement signage, and the future expansion of the Bellevue Exchange Club’s athletic fields and accompanying Metro Greenways system would not have been possible without Don’s direct involvement. He served as the Chairman of the Beautification Committee for which he was later recognized as Bellevue’s Citizen of the Year.
As a long-standing member of both the Bellevue Exchange Club and Bellevue Chamber of Commerce, Don was passionate about the town he called home.
In tribute to Don’s contributions to Bellevue, the Bellevue Exchange Club Foundation with contributions and support from the community created the Donald Wayne Johnson Memorial Garden in front of the newly-renovated Harpeth Valley Elementary School. Our thanks to Bellevue Exchange Club members, the Harpeth Elementary School Staff, community sponsors, and community volunteers for creating this beautiful tribute to Don Johnson.
