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.

Bahama Day - September 22, 2018


Dear Friend of the Bahama Community,

We wish to share news about the 7th annual Bahama Day celebration on September 22, 2018. The organizing committee is already back at work establishing all the activities that will make this community event a great success. We are working on children's activities, educational and vendor booths, food and beverage service, entertainment, parking, and security. I invite you to visit the event's website ( as we update information leading up to the event.

You are a vital part of the Bahama community and your assistance is needed to ensure the success of the 2018 event. Donations provided in support of Bahama Day activities are covered under Section 501 (c)(3) tax statute through the event's host organization BVFD-Bahama Day (Tax ID# 56-6064034). In addition to the tax benefits you will receive from making a charitable donation, your organization's role will be highlighted in Bahama Day communication materials (website, banner, etc.). It is with pride that we will let others know of your support.

We invite you to be a part of the team working to make this year's event a success and would welcome your participation in planning efforts. We typically only meet once a month to develop the event, so it does not represent a significant time commitment. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions concerning being a planning member, the event, or sponsorship activities. I am enclosing a sponsorship form with this letter. Feel free to inform others that sponsorship applications can be found at the website location described above. We look forward to hearing from you.
