Dee Leonard, one of the builders of the Warrenton Area Civitan Club is scheduled to be the guest speaker at the Jefferson Ruritan Club’s September 17 2013 general membership meeting.
The Warrenton Area Civitan Club (a branch of the National Civitan Club) is a service organization chartered in April 2013. The Civitan organization focuses on helping people with developmental disabilities and funding research into illnesses of the human brain.
One of the ways that the Warrenton Area Civitan Club has been raising funds for their projects is through recycling old, worn out sneakers.
The Civitan organization is an all volunteer service club, dating back to 1917. Chapters of the club can be found in 38 countries around the world.
The Jefferson Ruritan Club meets the third Tuesdays of each month at 7pm at the Jeffersonton Community Center in Jeffersonton VA.
