Ruritan is a community service organization
with the purpose of creating a better understanding among people and, through
volunteer community service, make their area a better place to live and work.
The slogan of Ruritan is Fellowship, Goodwill, and Community Service. Club
membership represents a cross section of the community which the club serves and
is available to all persons interested in their community.
See the Ruritan National web site: ruritan.org
Each Ruritan Club is Unique
Unlike most community service organizations, Ruritan rarely has national programs. Rather, each club surveys the needs of its own community and then works to meet some of those needs. Nearly all clubs work locally with youth organizations such as FFA, 4-H and Scouting. Many clubs provide and supervise community recreational centers, sponsor little league and other athletic programs, sponsor anti-litter campaigns, help the sick and needy and provide a wide range of other activities to help improve their local communities.
