About us

The mission of the Lucketts Ruritan Club is to engage the community in the care of the community. To build on what is best about Lucketts and make it the best place for all to to live.

Fellowship

One of the benefits of becoming a Club member is sharing fellowship in a diverse and respectful environment.

Ruritan Club members build new friendships within the Club and with our community by spending time with each other enjoying our beautiful countryside, our heritage, and our community resources.  Political, religious and other differences are respected because we promote a shared desire to build good relationships with all of our neighbors. 

Goodwill

Joining Ruritan is all about being a good neighbor.

Ruritan Club members extend goodwill to our community through recognition programs, communication projects and promotional activities, as well as direct financial support.  We celebrate and partner with everyone who is working
to make Lucketts a better place to live. 

Community Service

Membership provides an opportunity to work together for the good of the community.

Ruritan Club members focus on projects and fund raising activities that directly serve our community.  Monies raised support the Club’s scholarship, youth development and goodwill efforts.  These efforts contribute over $40,000
in direct support to the community every year.

Membership in the Lucketts Ruritan Club offers an opportunity to partner with people from all across our diverse and talented community.  Fellowship activities allow members to get to know each other while goodwill cements the bonds forged through fellowship. Together we strive to make Lucketts a better place to live through community service initiatives.

About Ruritan National

Ruritan is a national organization dedicated to improving communities and building a better America through,”Fellowship, Goodwill, and Community Service”. Its purpose is to create a better understanding among people and, through volunteer service, make their community a better place to live and work. Ruritan rarely has national programs. Rather, each club surveys the needs of its community and then works to meet those needs.

The first Ruritan Club was chartered May 21, 1928 in Holland, Virginia. Since that first club, Ruritan has grown throughout the United States, and in so doing, has become “America’s Leading Community Service Organization. Currently 32,000 members serve over 1,200 local communities across our Nation.

The name “Ruritan” was suggested by Daisy Nurney, a reporter for the Norfolk Virginia-Pilot newspaper. The word is a combination of the Latin words for open country (ruri) and small town (tan), interpreted as pertaining to rural and small town life.
