Community Engagement Committee

The purpose of the Community Engagement Committee is to assist in providing and maintaining economic stability and growth in production, commerce, and services in the community.



The Roaring 20s Murder Mystery Theater was jointly sponsored by the Gloucester Chamber of Commerce and the Abingdon Ruritan Club Community Engagement Committee.

The occasion bought out dazzlingly outfits by both men and woman. The event was filled with a variety of tantalizing food, socializing, and participating in the murder mystery. The event was held to bring visibility to our Club and to serve as a fundraiser for both organizations. Many ARC members volunteered and worked over 100 hours for the Community Engagement Committee, which will earn Gold Status at our ARC.

Gloucester Chamber of Commerce at ARC:

ARC Club Members regularly participate in networking with members of the Gloucester Chamber of Commerce during their monthly “After Hours” socials. Once the Governor loosens the restrictions on crowd size, we will continue to participate in this worthwhile interface.

Our Club partners with other organizations in the Community. One way we do that is to publicize how we relate to the Community. The picture below displays pictorially what we are all about. SONA Bank displayed this in one of the banks with great reviews from the Community.
