Rotarians of the Freeport Club were given a refresher course yesterday on the meaning and core values of Rotary by their President Rengin Johnson.

Johnson served as an impromptu speaker at the club's regular weekly meeting after guest speaker YMCA Director Daniel Williams cancelled at last minute because of unfortunate and unforeseeable circumstances. The object of Rotary, she explained, is to foster and encourage the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise.

"In particular to encourage and foster the development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service, high ethical standards in business, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupation and the dignifying of each Rotarians' occupation as an opportunity to serve society," she said.

Johnson said that the works and ideals of Rotarians should be modelled by all people in everyday life.
