New London Ruritan Club


Who we are
New London Ruritan Club has served the community since 1947. Ruritan members volunteer to enhance the quality of life through community service and to make our community a better place to live and work. Ruritan is family, fun and friends. We are proud to be an organization of positive people doing positive things in our community. We take pride in the things we bring to the New London area.

What we do
New London Ruritan Club committees propose and implement projects to fulfill community needs.
Examples: We provide 5th grade essay awards and college scholarships. We partner with Verizon Telecom Pioneers to provide dictionaries to 3rd grade students. We support: Feed the Need, rescue squads, volunteer fire departments, Central VA Livestock, Hunters for the Hungry, USA Dance, LifeLines by Tracie, and After Prom programs. As needed we are also happy to allow community members to use the clubhouse for fund-raisers to help community persons with medical expenses.

How we do it
New London Ruritan Club rents the clubhouse, and member volunteers sponsor dances welcoming everyone to be our guest.
• Dances include; country, shag, ballroom, and line dancing
• Rent the clubhouse for meetings, family reunions, birthday parties, weddings, etc
• We accept donations from kind folks that support our mission
