Ruritans seek help over break-ins at club

November 02, 2012|Paula Wolber | Around Maugansville

The Maugansville Ruritan Club Building, at 18007 Maugans Ave., has been broken into twice in the past 10 days. The heavy door lock by the bathrooms has been broken and both the kitchen and office doors were kicked in. 

The Ruritans have made the needed repairs, but are asking the Maugansville neighborhood to keep watch to deter or prevent further break-ins. 

The Ruritans support and give in so many ways to our community. This is an opportunity to do something to support them.
