NEW MEMBER INDUCTIONS

Continued from bulletin...

Two new members were inducted to the Rotary Club of St. Catharines South: Paul Monaghan, proposed by Paul Massuet; and Manfred Fast, proposed by Don Hetherington. Bob McBride and Richard Earne officiated.

Paul Monaghan, whose classification is "Funeral Services," joined us from the Niagara Falls Sunrise Club. Paul is General Manager of Darte Funeral Chapel. He is married to Janet and three children and two grandchildren.

Manfred (Manny) Fast, whose classication is "Charitable Trust Administration," is Program Manager for the Ontario Trillium Foundation in Niagara. He is married to Kim and has two children.  

"We welcome you," noted Bob, "not only for your friendship, which we will share with you, but also for your commitment to help us carry out the projects of our club...You have been selected for membership because we believe you to be a leader in your special line of activity, and we expect you to represent your classification to the very best of your ability...You also become the ambassador from us to your classification...and we expect you to carry out the ideals of service to the people you now represent from our Rotary club."   

Bob also noted that Rotary is not a political organization, but all Rotarians are vitally concerned with everything pertaining to good citizenship and the election of good people to public office.

Rotary is not a charitable organization, but we believe in the Golden Rule, and we follow a code that we consider before we make any decision in our field. This code asks us to consider the following questions when making a decision:

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?

This is the Rotary Four-Way Test.

Rotary is not a religious organization. It knows no race nor crred, but we believe in the enternal principles that have made religion the vital influence it has been on the destinies of people throughout the ages. 

We are an organization of equals and, as such, we treat each other as equals and hence address each other by our first names. 

Attendance at our weekly meetings is vital."

Both Paul and Manfred were warmly welcomed to the club and to Rotary by District Governor Richard Earne and all members present.
