May is Military Appreciation Month as well as Ruritan Awareness Month

We salute all current and former members of the military.  Some of the men and women in our club are retired or former soldiers, sailors, airmen (and women), marines, Coast Guardsmen, and members of the National Guard, who served our country and are continuing to serve our community through Ruritan.

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 add members to Ruritan by inviting individuals who are civic minded and willing to work to join us.
