December 2014 SHARE Food Network Menu

December 2014 SHARE Food Network Menu

The SHARE Food Menu for December 2014 has been released. The Jefferson (VA) Ruritan Club uses the SHARE Food Network to help feed their sponsored needy families. Some club members use SHARE Food for their own families as well.

This is a great way to save money on food – and you do not have to disclose income. You do not need to be receiving food stamps. The food is top-quality. If you are not taking advantage of this opportunity to get good food for little money, it is a crying shame!

The “Order Turn-in date” is the date that the organizers have to turn their orders in to the warehouse, so place YOUR order by the day before. The pick-up dates on the flyer indicate Friday as an option, but it is NOT an option here in the area – the pick-up date is Saturday only.

Note: In some locations prices do NOT include a surcharge to offset the price of gasoline for the volunteer drivers who use their personal vehicles to drive to the warehouse to pick up the shipment to bring to the local host sites.

When you place your order, please check with the coordinator for the appropriate pick-up time for the location you will be using, and for the possible surcharge appropriate to your pick-up location.

There are three local distribution locations near the Jefferson (VA) Ruritan Club where area residents can pick up their food orders:

Jefferson MD dedicating veterans memorial 12-13 (photo from Frederick News Post website)

Story from the Frederick News Post website:

Posted: Tuesday, December 10, 2013 2:00 am
The Jefferson Ruritan Club recently dedicated a veterans memorial for the Jefferson community. It recognizes local residents who gave their time and energy to one of the armed forces. The memorial is located at the entrance to the Jefferson Ruritan Center on Lander Road in Jefferson. Along with the memorial, engraved pavers for specific veterans have been laid at the base and have been provided by loved ones. An illuminated U.S. flag is continuously flown at the site. To learn more about the memorial, visit jeffersonmd.net. From left are Steve Spohr Juan Stull and George Stauffer, all unveiling the monument; and Jay House, citizenship and patriotism committee chairperson.

US VetSource – clicking on this graphic will take you to the US Vet Source website

The Jefferson VA Ruritan Club donated $100 February 19, 2014 to the US Vet Source Inc charity that had been featured during the November 2013 general membership meeting. Attached to the check was a note stating “With great respect for your work for the Board.”

This donation demonstrates the type of Leadership that Ruritan National President Elliott Hogge spoke about at the National Ruritan Convention in January 2013 when he encouraged all of the local Ruritan clubs to do something special this year to honor veterans.

US Vet Source, Inc., is a 501(c)3 Charity in Culpeper VA. The charity is dedicated to helping veterans and their families that are suffering from PTSD. US Vet Source is looking for volunteers to help work on the facilities, and fund-raising help to help provide these vital services to the men and women who served our country.

Hunters for the Hungry certificate 2013

Hunters for the Hungry certificate 2013

During the January 29 2014 Ruritan Rapidan District’s Annual Presidents and Secretaries meeting and dinner, the Hunters for the Hungry! passed out certificates of appreciation to the local Ruritan Clubs that had donated money to their charity. The Jefferson VA Ruritan Club’s President and Secretary did not attend the meeting, so the award was given to a District’s Lt. Governor for safekeeping, with the understanding that the certificate will be delivered to the club in the near future.

It’s always nice to be appreciated!
