Town of Chapin recognizes Ruritan Club with proclamation at council meeting

Chapin, SC (Paul Kirby) – The Town of Chapin’s government proclaimed Saturday, Oct. 27 as a day of celebration for the Chapin Ruritan Club’s 70th anniversary. Carl Connelly, president of the Chapin Ruritan Club, received the resolution from Chapin Mayor David Knight along with the official proclamation.

The Club was chartered on Nov. 1, 1948 and has been active in promoting fellowship and community service ever since. They have supported scholarships for students of the local schools, been heavily involved in hundreds of community projects over the decades and have generally been supportive of the community in many ways. They meet once a month and enjoy fellowship with one another. They also participate in Ruritan district events and have been honored by the Ruritan organization many times for their work.

According to Wikipedia, Ruritan National is a service club located in mostly small towns and rural areas of the United States. Its aim is to achieve "Fellowship, Goodwill and Community Service.” Many Ruritan clubs sponsor local clubs or chapters of 4-H, the National FFA Organization, or a Boy Scouts of America troop.

In Ruritans, each club surveys the needs of its own community and then works to meet some of those needs. Many clubs have provided and supervised community recreational centers, sponsored little league and other athletic programs, sponsored anti-litter campaigns, helped the sick and needy, and provided a wide range of other activities to help improve their communities. Several are also heavily involved in community events like festivals and celebrations.
