“Community People Meeting Community Needs”
The address is 8101 Crum Rd, Walkersville, MD 21793, but the mailing address is PO Box 15, Walkersville, MD 21793, since Mt. Pleasant does not have a Post office. We serve the community through charitable outreach and volunteer services. Organized in 1960, it is one of eight Ruritan clubs in Frederick County.
We have a facility able to be rented for wedding receptions, birthdays, Quinceaneras, and other non-commercial events. The inside space is 80 ft. x 45 ft. with a stage and a kitchen. See “hall rental” for more detail.
Membership is open to men, women and youth. Dues are $45 per year. Call Dick Lenhart at 301-663-0926 for further information.
