There will be three separate drawings for the prizes.

The tickets can be purchased from any East Orange Ruritan Club member, or by calling Linda Wilson at 540-222-3736.
From the Jefferson Ruritan Facebook page, re-published with permission from the Jefferson Ruritan Club: Due to irreconcilable differences with the JCC and JUMC, members of the Jefferson Ruritan Club demolished the turkey shoot range today. It was a sad moment to see 30 years of tradition come down. As of now there will be no turkey shoots scheduled unless an new venue is found.
