The Bahama Ruritan Club has been serving the local community for more than 70 years. We will be celebrating our 70 Year Anniversary all year long. Help us celebrate by joining us.
There are many wonderful events empowered solely or in partnership by the Bahama Ruritans. The Bahama Christmas Parade, Bahama Day, and The Annual BBQ Dinner are just a few.
Community groups provide fantastic dinners for us during meetings every 2nd Tuesday of the month. Speak to a Ruritan member to receive an invitation. Please be aware, you must have an invitation to attend.
BAHAMA RURITAN CLUB
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.
- Drawing will be at the end of each quarter that the contest is in effect
- New members must be full, associate or youth
- One member earns you one chance. Two members get 1 + 2 chances. Three members get 1 + 2 + 3 chances and so on.
- If the new member is at least five years younger than you, earn five extra chances (provide dates of birth for both of you)
- 3 winners each quarter drawn at random after all the extra chances are calculated: $200, $400, and $600
Bahama Christmas Parade – December 14, 2019
The Bahama Ruritans facilitate the Bahama Christmas Parade every year. This year the parade is scheduled for December 14th beginning at 10 am. Please stay tuned for any updates. We usually have about 100 entrants. Be sure to bring your kids and be prepared to gather candy as most participants give away candy as they drive by. The parade starts at the intersection of Country Knoll and Bahama roads and ends at The Ruritan Club where you can find hot chocolate and donuts; all you want for free. Deadline to enter the parade for participants December 1st.
