Florence Bakke, Roman Bakke, Dick Eaton, and Jim Tew of the Fluvanna County Ruritan Club have been busy fund-raising this summer at the Fridays after Five series at the Sprint Pavillion in Charlottesville by selling soft drinks.
Earlier in the year, the Fluvanna County Ruritan Club awarded two scholarships to college-bound graduating seniors from Fluvanna County High School. The Howard Cook Award for Citizenship in the amount of $250 was awarded to Eleanor Sechler, and the Fluvanna Ruritan Scholarship in the amount of $1,000 was awarded to Elisha Nicholas. The scholarships were awarded in May.
Lignum Ruritan Club will be celebrating Ruritan Awareness month from 5pm – 8pm, May 23, 2016 at the Chick-Fil-A in Culpeper, VA. The Club is holding a “Spirit Night.” Chick-Fil-A will donate a proceeds of sales from any customer that tells their cashier that they are supporting the “Ruritan Spirit Night” to the Lignum Ruritan Club. Please come out and enjoy a chicken dinner, and fellowship with other Ruritans and their supporters!
