SPECIAL REPORT: Ruritan Saturday Breakfasts in Henry County, Virginia

This is a little different than the normal destination sites that I like to cover on this show. This is a place to go BEFORE you start your weekend of rambling. Oh, and you’re not gonna wanna miss the special interview in the middle… Watch the show, and you’ll see what I mean.

Well, you can guess where I’ll be as many Saturday mornings and my schedule will allow! How cool is it that you can have a really great breakfast at a very reasonable price, spend some quality time visiting with fellow-ramblers, AND do something to help your community – all in one fell swoop! I’ve mapped out the Saturday Breakfasts that I could document. Here’s the list (all are 6 to 10 a.m.)

Spencer Ruritan – 40 George Taylor Rd, Spencer, VA – 1st Saturday of the month, November through May

Bassett Ruritan – 277 Philpott Dam Rd, Bassett, VA – 2nd Saturday, year-round

Sanville Ruritan – 3451 Stones Dairy Rd, Bassett, VA – 3rd Saturday, year-round

Horse Pasture Volunteer Fire Department – 17815 AL Philpott Hiway, Ridgeway, VA – 4th

Note that the last entry listed is NOT a Ruritan. But, I included for two reasons. First, when I was asking Ruritan Club members where other Ruritan Breaksfasts were, they listed this one. Second, the Horse Pasture VFD uses the proceeds the same way – to benefit the local community.

If you are as impressed with this breakfast concept as I am, or if you would like to learn more about the Ruritans, whose sole purpose is to assist their local community in any way possible, you might want to join them or give them a donation. Here’s their link: Ruritan National Clubs.

So, when you’re heading out for a weekend of rambling; to explore the many places to go, things to do and events to attend, hit a Ruritan Saturday Breakfast first, and know that you’re making a difference in your community.

As you head out, make sure you are driving a safe, well-maintained vehicle.
