One of the Ashburn Ruritan Club's ongoing activities is to give Rudy Ruritan Teddy Bears to Ashburn Fire and Rescue, local deputies of the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, and local troopers from the Virginia State Police. The bears are kept on the Fire Trucks and in the patrol cars and handed out to youngsters involved in fires or auto crashes.

According to Ashburn Fire Chief Ken Lawson, "One of the ways we tell how badly a child is injured is by their reaction to the Rudy Bears. If they don't reach for the bear, we know we're dealing with a very, very sick youngster."

Several fund raising activities are conducted by members during the year to raise money in support of charitable activities such as the Rudy Ruritan Teddy Bears. Fund raisers include parking cars at the Old Dominion Kennel Club Dog Show, selling food and beverages at local events, and the club's semi-annual fruit sale.

Contact club president Alan Scaggs at 729-0830 for membership information or to RSVP for the club's monthly dinner meeting.
