The first Ruritan Club was started in 1928 in Holland Virginia.  Now, the Ruritan has grown to become “America’s Leading Community Service Organization.”

The Ruritan Mission:  Ruritan is a national organization dedicated to improving communities and building a better America through Fellowship, Goodwill, and Community Service.

The Bahama local chapter of Ruritan tries to access the needs of our community within and surrounding Bahama to offer assistance through fellowship, goodwill and service.

We want to be made aware of real needs we can address in our community.  Communication is key.
