4-way Test

From the earliest days of the organization, Rotarians were concerned with promoting high ethical standards in their professional lives. One of the world's most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics is The Four-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor (who later served as RI president) when he was asked to take charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy.

This 24-word test for employees to follow in their business and professional lives became the guide for sales, production, advertising, and all relations with dealers and customers, and the survival of the company is credited to this simple philosophy. Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The Four-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways. It asks the following four questions:

"Of the things we think, say or do:

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?""

A Message From The President
President Chad Westbrook - Rotary Year 2016-2017 This years theme for Rotary is “Rotary Serving Humanity” and it couldn’t be a better theme for me and my presidency this year. This fits right into my beliefs. I think we are here to help one another and try to make our time on earth a better place and show people that we care. Therefore, I joined Rotary 4 years ago, I wanted to find the same minded people to serve humanity with. Our club does so much for our community, like feeding the hungry, raising money for Alzheimer, helping with local projects and so much more. Rotary has helped me be a part of an organization that helps serve humanity at the local level and worldwide level that I couldn’t do on my own. Just like every president in the past and in the future, our goal is to grow the club. By growing our club, we can serve more to our community, do more projects locally and nationally. Past president Dale Gentle set a plan in motion last year to grow our club by two members each year for the next five years. My year I would like to make that number higher and try to grow by four this year. We got off to a quick start with two joining the first week of my year so I think we can get another two (hopefully more) this year.
