The Armuchee Ruritan Club was chartered March 22, 1954 as the North Floyd Club. When a second club was formed in the northern part of Floyd County, the name was changed to identify it with the Armuchee Community. The club has provided over $65,000 for college scholarships, over $5000 in summer camp scholarships and other community benevolence. Most recently, the club renovated the outdoor amphitheater at Glenwood Primary School, provided Character Education t-shirts to students at Armuchee Elementary and Glenwood Primary schools, and purchased book bags for needy children in the Armuchee community.
