Update on forming a new Ruritan Club

Last week, a club-building team made up of Larry Tomm, Mike Spruill and Annie Lawson began working to help Local County residents organize a Ruritan Club to serve the Any Town community. The core group met June 20 and all eight signed the Charter application. Sixteen signers are needed to form the club. Do you know a prospective member? Next meeting is July 20.

This is Ruritan

Ruritan, a national organization with patriotic American ideals, began in Holland, Virginia in 1928. The Ruritan mission of improving communities and building a better America through fellowship, Goodwill and Community Service has touched thousands of lives in a positive way.

Today, Ruritan is a vibrant organization serving both rural and urban communities. Ruritan membership is by invitation only from a local club and represents a cross-section of the community it serves.
