LOWER ALLOWAYS CREEK RURITAN CLUB
About our club
Lower Alloways Creek Ruritan Club is a community service organization - part of a national organization of Ruritan clubs. Our national motto is "Fellowship, Goodwill and Community Service". Our goal is to serve our community as much as possible. We hold fundraisers throughout the year and donate our proceeds to a variety of causes. We also perform several community service projects.
Our annual commitments are:
- Mary Fowser Scholarship - $750 annually for up to 4 years of college
- Lila Williams Memorial Awards - top LAC Elementary School 8th grade male and female students, awarded at 8th grade graduation
- Salem Girls Softball
- Salem Little League
We have donated to Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Missions Trips, Educational Trips, Cultural Events, and people in need. We have also purchased medical equipment and structures for disabled children and adults and provided for the needs of the elderly.
Who says work can't be fun? We always have laughs as we work together. We usually host two country breakfasts per year plus our ever popular Crab and Craft Festival. We also do a community road cleanup.
Our club meets once a month for business, food and fellowship at a dinner meeting. Our dinner meetings are the first Thursday of every month at 6:30pm and usually include a speaker. The locations may change depending on who is serving our meal. We are very informal and family oriented. Guests and visitors are welcome with prior arrangement at $10pp.
Our Board of Directors meets on the last Thurs. of each month.
Dues are $10/month and cover the cost of the monthly meal and national dues. Dues are waived for the first 3 months of membership.
Associate membership applies to individuals or businesses who can't attend the meetings, but who still want to help their community through the Ruritan club. Dues are $10/quarter or $40/yr.
