Randy Green, Co-chair of the Lewistown Ruritan Education and Scholarship Committee, presented $3,175 in scholarships at the annual picnic to the following students: Natalie Dodson, Penn State – Altoona; Dalton Mount, Waynesburg University; Kaitlyn Schildt, West Virginia University; Phoenix Moore, Costal Carolina; Allison Rippeon, Shippensburg University; Lauren Anderson, Bucknell University; and Michael Staley, University of North Carolina.
The Lewistown Ruritan Club has been a mainstay of economic support for many community activities. The money to fund these activities and the scholarships is raised by holding its famous chicken BBQs each year from May through October and through funds derived from its golf tournaments.
