Association of

Virginia Ruritans

What is the AVR? 

The AVR or Association of Virginia Ruritans is open to all Ruritans, especially those in Virginia, and Ruritan National officials.  The purpose of the association is to support and enhance Ruritan and Ruritan ideals throughout Virginia, to encourage fellowship and communications among Virginia Ruritans and to sponsor an annual Rally of Virginia Ruritans.

Every Ruritan member in Virginia is a member of the AVR.  There are no yearly, monthly or daily dues.  Each Ruritan is invited to participate and attend the quarterly meetings and the yearly rally.  Each activity is an event of fellowship.
