Ruritan Awareness Night
You are invited, Save the date!

On Friday, August 19th we will open our doors to everyone between the hours of 5 and 7 PM to visit and learn how the club serves the community. Visitors will be able to tour the main building and the fairgrounds. There will be tables or booths set up with information about the club’s various activities such as the seafood festivals, Relay for Life, club rental opportunities, and scholarships. The Environmental, Citizenship/Patriotism, Social Development, Business/Professions, and Public Service Committees will provide information about their activities. Light refreshments will be served to be enjoyed while visiting the facility and the various displays. This is NOT a fundraising activity. There will be no vendors, nothing for sale, and no solicitations, but you might be lucky enough to win a door prize.
