Looking over the Officer’s Handbook from the Ruritan Club, I saw that there is supposed to be a Publicity Chair on the District Board. Looking at last year’s directory, I saw that there wasn’t even a listing for that chair! So I called the District Governor, and asked him if he already had someone to fill that position, and he said that he had not yet filled the spot, and did not have anyone in mind. So I volunteered to fill that spot, and he agreed. So now I am also the Publicity Chair for the Rapidan Distric! One of my first actions as Publicity Chair, was to reach out to local radio and television stations, to see if any of them are willing to run free Public Service Announcements for any of the clubs in the District.
I was extremely gratified that most of the stations contacted have agreed! One television station, a local access television station in Spotsylvania County (CVTV) even designed this great video spot, based on a script that I provided for them (from a radio spot on the National Ruritan website) and they are running it for the Ruritan Club! I am so grateful for the positive response I have had from the community!
I’ve posted a copy of the Ruritan PSA video on the unofficial website that I designed for the Rapidan District, and am providing a copy of it here as well.
Here is a copy of the PSA – what do YOU think of it?
