June’s the Month for Brides, Graduations, Father’s Day, Flag Day, and more!  

We are welcoming many happy celebrations to our building this month, and to help set a lovely scene we have refreshed the outside of the building with new foundation plantings.

Ruritan Awareness Night
You are invited, Save the date!
August 19,  5 to 7 PM

We love to talk about Ruritan, and we would love to talk to you about what our mission is (no secret, it’s community service!).  We are having an open house on  August 19, a “Ruritan Awareness Night”,  when the public is invited to drop in between 5 and 7 pm and see what Ruritan is all about, and what our own club’s activities are.  We’ll be serving light refreshments inside our building where we will have displays set up, giving you the opportunity to browse and to mingle with our members.  if you are planning a future event and are searching for a place to hold it, this would be a good time to see our banquet room, too. Or,  if you are interested in hard work and giving back to our community, we can talk to you about membership!
