Rapidan District map
Welcome to the temporary (and officially approved by the Cabinet) Ruritan Rapidan District Website! This website is new, and under construction. Hopefully in the next few days more information will be added to the website, to provide you with better information about the Rapidan District, and the local clubs within the Rapidan District Boundaries. In the next few weeks we plan to move this website to a location where there will be more features (such as a better calendar of events) no ads, and a completely unique domain name. This interim website will serve just fine for the moment! Please bear with us while we enter the information highway! If you see an error, please contact the webmaster, and every effort will be made to correct the error as quickly as possible!
The Rapidan District serves twenty-four local Ruritan Clubs in nine counties in Virginia:

Thank you all for your continuing prayers and outreach to us. Every single day a card, a phone call, or a visitor has arrived to show Elliott some love! Elliott has made a remarkable physical recovery in the last 7 weeks. He still has three sessions a week with a speech therapist, and he is doing his speech “homework” as well. He is working very hard! Sometimes I get tired just watching. The stroke caused two speech-related conditions: aphasia and apraxia of speech. His intellect is intact, he can read, he can do math, and his thought processes are fine, but the problem is the spoken word, in that he sometimes has difficulty saying the word he wants to say. He is still early in the healing process, so please continue to pray for his complete recovery.
On June 20, 2014, the Ruritan Summer Leadership Conference attendees were treated to a picnic at nearby Randolph Park, and a performance by a local band by the name of Buck Nelson. Here is a YouTube video of one of the songs they performed on that date. This video is of the actual performance of that date and location.
Thanks for the performance guys, you were awesome!
Happy Independence Day!
Best wishes to all Ruritan friends and family across the world, for a very happy, fun, and safe celebration of Independence Day!

This website celebrated its five month anniversary on July 3, 2014. This post would have been published then, but an unexpected power outage due to a storm postponed that from happening.
Since the website made it’s debut in February, there have been 3,071 hits! Not too shabby! We’d like to thank our readers for their continued loyalty!

In previous months, we have posted more details and stats for this website, but we have determined to forgo that. Chances are pretty good that nobody really is that interested in all that techno-geek data anyway!
We hope to continue to provide valuable information to the public, and members, of and about the Rapidan District of the Ruritan Club!
