The show this year is in memory of Claude “Bud” Knowles, who lost his battle with cancer in 2010. Knowles and his wife, Barbara, were longtime members of the Ruritan Club and very instrumental in various fund raisers. Before his death he was honored as the recipient of the Tom Downing Fellow award, the highest honor in Ruritan.
Ruritans have been helping their communities since 1928.
The Harrison Club, one of the largest in the USA, was founded in 1952. The club takes on numerous projects in an effort to make our community a better place to live and work. Among other annual deeds the club grants college scholarships to area graduating high school seniors based on need.
The club also distributes awards to area grammar and middle schools based on good character.
Among the projects receiving donations are area recreation leagues, Hwy 58 Volunteer Fire Dept. Christmas toy drive, Friends of Harrison Bay State Park, Habitat for Humanity, Freedoms Foundation, Chattanooga Food Bank, area schools, assisting the needy, and much more.
In the past two weeks, the club men and women have tackled tree and debris removal for storm damaged homes in the community.
One-hundred percent of proceeds from this show go to the general funds of the club for the above projects.
The first 150 registrants will receive a goodie bag. Door prizes will be awarded during the day and there will be a 50/50 drawing.
