Ruritan is a civic organization whose objectives include creating a greater understanding between rural and urban people on the problems of each, as well as on their mutual problems and working with those agencies which serve the community and contribute directly to its progress. It is similar to the service organizations of the cities but designed to meet the needs of rural people and rural communities.
Ruritan was founded in 1928 in Holland, Virginia, it has grown from the Tidewater area of Virginia to the foot hills of the Rockies: from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico, and in doing so, has become the largest rural civic organization in America.
Marlowe Ruritan Meetings are held at 6:30 p.m. the 3rd Thursday of each month at the Marlowe Ruritan Building.
