Ruritan is a civic service organization whose purpose is to create a better understanding between people and through volunteer community service, make their area a better place to live and work. The slogan of Ruritan is Fellowship, Goodwill, and Community Service.
Unlike most civic service organizations, Ruritan rarely has national programs. Rather each club surveys its own community as to the needs of that community and then works to meet some of those needs.
A large part of our annual fund raising comes from sponsoring Bluegrass music concerts. Some of the biggest names in Bluegrass Music have appeared at the Fairview Ruritan Club building, and each year brings another lineup of the best.
