What is Rotary and what is the Rotary Four Way Test?

We’re a leadership organization of local business, professional and civic leaders. We meet weekly, get to know each other, form friendships, and through that we’re able to get much needed service projects done in our community and in our world. We are an ethical and honest organization as defined by our “Four Way Test”:
 

1. Is it the TRUTH?

2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?

3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?

4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?


What are the requirements for joining?

After three visits to our club, you qualify to apply for membership. You will need a sponsor who is a club member (usually the person who invited you). If you are new to the area or don’t know a club member, please let us know and we will find you a sponsor.


Am I required to come to the meeting every Wednesday?

You are not required to attend weekly, but the more active you are with the club, the more you will get out of it. Make the most of your membership. Join a committee. Lead a service project. Organize a social event.  Our motto is “Service Above Self.”

The meeting starts at 11:45 a.m. with visiting and networking with new and old friends. Enjoy a delicious lunch. The formal meeting starts at 12:15 a.m. and ends promptly at 1:15 a.m. Each week we do our best to offer interesting, thought-provoking and entertaining speakers from our community and beyond.


How do I make up a meeting if I am not able to come?

You can visit other Rotary clubs in the area, other states or countries within two weeks. Ask for a make-up slip, and turn it in to our club for attendance credit. Make-ups can also be done online and at District or other Rotary events.
