Jefferson Ruritans Remove Turkey Shoot Structures

Jefferson Ruritans Remove Turkey Shoot Structures

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.

Irene Luck, the Rapidan District’s 2016 District Governor, is pleased to provide the following links to directions/patterns for the chemo cap project that is one of her favorite community service projects that she has been encouraging the District’s clubs to participate in. The directions/patterns, are from the Headuggers website that has many different patterns for chemo caps (including patterns for children,) and these three patterns have been chosen by Irene as her favorite ones:

Easy single crochet chemo cap pattern
Homespun hat crochet chemo cap pattern
One Ball Really Easy Instant Chemo Cap Knit pattern

Irene hopes to have the Rapidan District Clubs bring completed caps to the Rapidan District’s convention this upcoming November, and she plans to transport them to the Ruritan National Convention next January.
