Administrative History

The Rockingham Luncheon Ruritan Club was chartered on August 19, 2008 as the first ruritan club in Virginia to provide daytime meetings. Some of their first initiatives included cleaning up the Lincoln Homestead Cemetery, supporting naturalization ceremonies, and donating the Dorothy L. Baugher papers to James Madison University Special Collections. During its first year, the club donated Rudy Ruritan Bears to pediatric patients at Rockingham Memorial Hospital and provided hot dogs and beverages for the Bridgewater Challenger Baseball Team.
