Don Hess, public relations and membership officer for the McGaheysville Ruritan Club, holds a copy of “The McGaheysville Story,” a recent publication about the history of the unincorporated village of McGaheysville. Ruritans hope “The McGaheysville Story” will inform people about the club’s role in the community as well as tell the town’s history. Hess says a main goal of the publication is recruiting manpower for the club’s service activities. Photo by Nikki Fox / DN-R.
