Not a club just for old goats. We have National and District conventions as well a dinner meeting the first Monday of every month at 7:00PM at the club house, 8101 Crum Road, just off of Rt. 26 in Mt. Pleasant. The next District Convention is in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania on Nov. 4, 2017. The National Convention is in Charleston, SC , January 18-21, 2018.
We host a Bluegrass jam, unplugged, for non-professionals the second Friday of each month (except June, July and August). Admission is free 7 PM to 11 PM (donations are appreciated). Family friendly with snacks and soft drinks available. Some people have even been seen dancing. The next Jam is on October 13.
The OYSTER FEED is always a great time in January. We raised $1000 for The ARC of Frederick County. There will be another in January 2018.
QUARTERMANIA was also great again last year. We raised $1800 for school supplies for the immediate areas. We alternate the two Quartermania events funds that are raised for a support effort for our troops. The next one is October 15 , 2017.
The Ruritan club sponsors Boy Scout Troop 1636 and the Kaleidoscope 4-H club. Several times a year the club gets together with the other organizations for a road pickup along the country roads.
We held our 15th annual GOLF TOURNAMENT in June at Glade Valley Golf Course to benefit our scholarship program. We were able to clear about $3,000.00, which, with other funds, enabled us to provide four $1500 scholarships this year.
