Charities in Prince Edward County,

Becoming a Member

We want to thank you for investing some time to see if joining Rotary is the right decision for you.  

The interesting thing about Rotary is that the local clubs govern how to run their club.  Each club has a different focus.  But one thing they all have in common is that they are a leadership organization, made up of local business, professional and civic leaders.  They meet regularly, get to know each other and, through that fellowship, are able to accomplish great things.

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise. One of the guiding principles is the Four-Way Test, which is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide or set of values.  Rotarians can use this for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages and often Rotarians recite it at club meetings. 

Four Way Test

Of the things we think, say or do:

  • Is it the TRUTH?
  • Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  • Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  • Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

 

As a Rotarian, you will be welcomed at any Rotary club in the world.  You will have the opportunity to business network with your club members and other Rotarians.  Membership also comes with obligations. There is an expectation that you will attend meetings on a somewhat regular basis.  There are dues to be paid. Rotarians support our Rotary Foundation, which is the charity that supports us to do good in the world and provides funds in the form of grants for our community and international projects.
