News release provided by the Belmont Ruritan Club
The Belmont Ruritan Club meeting held April 7th featured a visit and presentation by Captain Jeff Foster, “T.C. Waddy Station 9” VDF, Spotsylvania County.
Captain Foster, accompanied by five station members, were guests of the Club as a continuing thank you for their time and sharing their expertise in protecting our community. The presentation centered on reminding residents to “shut doors” in the event of a fire, check smoke alarms on a monthly basis and change batteries every 6 months, and to be aware of the open burning guidelines within the county especially during the high danger fire seasons as posted along our highways.
The Ruritan Club and the Belmont Club of Women provide support for the station and crew facilities through the sharing of funds raised by the annual Ham and Oyster Dinner.
From the Desk of the Lt. Governor:
CVTV (a local television station) in Spotsylvania County, VA, responded quickly to our request for a free PSA promoting Ruritan awareness by designing this video, and they will be airing it immediately. They have also offered to run free PSAs promoting our local Ruritan events in the future. This video directs viewers that are interested in more information to contact the National Ruritan office, and supplies their phone number and website address.
Hopefully this will help to increase membership rolls in our local Ruritan Clubs in their viewing area!
The video has also been posted on YouTube. You should be able to view it from this post, by clicking on the video at the top of this post.
Our heartfelt thanks to CVTV, for your help in our publicity campaign and getting the word out to our local communities about the Ruritan organization!
