The Lewistown Ruritan Club was formed on August 16, 1960, and has been prominent in Lewistown since its inception. The Club has been a mainstay of economic support for many community activities. The money to fund these activities is raised by holding their famous chicken BBQs six times a year, from May through October. The location along U.S. Route 15 brings in many travelers, as well as the regulars.
The Club also provides scholarships to local high school graduates, funded by the annual golf tournament.
The Lewistown Ruritan Club meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall at Lewistown United Methodist Church.
