At its October meeting, the Jefferson Ruritan Club donated the sum of $11,755.51 to the Culpeper Ruritan Foundation for the purpose of awarding scholarships to Culpeper Co. students for higher education. This is a result of the Jefferson Ruritan Foundation terminating its scholarship activity in Jefferson Magisterial District and this will now be subsumed by the Culpeper Ruritan Foundation. The Jefferson Ruritan Club has granted over $30,000 in scholarships to the local community since 1982. The Jefferson Ruritan Club meets at 6:30pm on the 3rd Tues. of each month at the Jeffersonton Baptist Fellowship Hall.
The Jefferson VA Ruritan Club is holding their 29th annual Scholarship Benefit Groundhog Day all-you–can-eat pancake and sausage supper 5-7 pm February 7, 2015 at the Jeffersonton Community Center at 5073 Jeffersonton Rd, Jeffersonton VA. The supper is sponsored by the Jefferson Ruritan Foundation of Culpeper, and all proceeds are going to annual scholarships for local college bound students.

From the desk of Lt. Governor:
Does your club have any business members? If not, your club may be missing out on some great opportunities to improve their membership, publicity, and community service!
There is an informative post about the benefits of business members that makes some worthwhile points to consider. The article can be read on this page. If you want to read the articles, you can click on the hyperlink in the previous sentence to be taken to the appropriate page.
I’d like to encourage all of the Ruritan Clubs to consider the benefits of inviting local businesses to join their Ruritan club. Business members can be a valuable resource to Ruritan clubs.
