 The Association of Virginia Ruritans held the
Spring Rally on April 13-15 at the Kirkley Hotel
in Lynchburg, VA.
 
Approximately 60 Virginia Ruritans and Ruritans
from North Carolina, West Virginia, and Ohio (including a visiting family member from Arkansas) enjoyed a well-planned and interesting weekend
in the Lynchburg area.
 
The weekend started on Friday night with a
Liberty University baseball game and ice cream social.  As 2002 National President
Millard Thacker said,
"We went to a ice cream social and
a baseball game broke out".
 
Saturday morning began with a delicious breakfast
at the hotel and the AVR Business Meeting.
The meeting was very informative and we heard

 Dinner Saturday evening was at the

Sunday morning - we attended the praise and
worship service at the Thomas Road Baptist
Church - near the Liberty University campus.
We had the privilege to hear the Liberty
