Sterling Club History

The Sterling Club has served the community by providing those services needed by the community, and especially services needed by the youth of our area.  This was our goal in the 1950s and continues to be our goal.

The most important accomplishment is the Club’s ability to attract and keep membership that commits itself to providing for the needs of our community.

Second must be the Charter Members knowledge that to support the community the community must have a place in which to meet.  This task was accomplished in 1956 when the Club purchased the building known as Bowman’s Tavern at a cost of $8000.  The first meeting was held in our clubhouse in February 1959 and in 1963 ground was broken for the 36 x 80’ building addition. 

{slider=Read More}

The cost of this addition was estimated at $17,000 and was scheduled to be completed by November 23, 1963.  Before the County could provide a community center, the Sterling Ruritan Club provided their building to the community.  Until 1966 the Club provided free use of our facility, in 1966 the cost was set at $50 dollars to rent and $10 for clean up.  The Club has continually improved its facility and though higher than the 1966 rates, rates charged today for use of our facility are kept at a minimum.

The Club then, as we do today, financed the procurement of our building through fund raising efforts.  In the past we have had dances, raffles, benefit dinners, turkey shoots, and the Salvation Army kettle bell ringing.  Today we use such fund raisers as Bingo, trailer food sales, and club rentals.

What about service to our youth?  In 1953 the Club voted to award a $25 dollar war bond to the outstanding student from the local school.  Since then the Club has continued its commitment by continuing the outstanding student awards.  Because of the growth in our area the number of schools participating have increased significantly and funding for this effort currently exceeds $20,000 a year.

In the 1950s the Club erected an outdoor basketball court at the local school, furnished books for the library and installed lighting in the school parking lot.  In the 1960s we donated money to buy needy students books, supported building of a new school for the cited Broyhill development, supported the religious program in school and helped start the Broad Run High School Booster Fund.  The Club also has continuously supported youth sports organizations and the Boy and Girl Scout programs.  We continue to support our schools by allowing them to use our facilities for their fundraising efforts, we provide needed monetary donations to support programs like Project Graduation as well as other events at each of our three supported high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools.

The Club worked with the County Court System in 1952 by obtaining temporary custody of six children left homeless and parentless by the destruction of their home by fire.  We worked with the same court system in 1990 to become an approved organization where kids sentenced to hours of community service could work those hours off under our supervision.  The Club continues to support individuals and organizations that provide the community with help with medical expenses, utility bills, food donations, clothing, and any other issues brought to our attention.

In the 1950s we worked with the county to relieve the cause of flooding on Route 614 at Stallion Creek, provided street lights for the town of Sterling, opposed an ordinance that required two acres to build a home and in the 1960s we sponsored the new water line to be installed in Sterling and endorsed actions regarding the Seneca Dam.  We continue to work on issues of affordable housing, landfill problems, and support of the bike path.
