The Four Way Test

The Four Way Test

Of the things we think, say or do:

  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?


United in the spirit of Service we value truth, fairness and friendship; and we welcome the opportunity that Rotary gives us to contribute our talents and resources in support of others.


Rotary Club of Adelaide Light Mission Statement

Jokes Corner
My handicap?  Woods and irons.
The ardent golfer would play Mount Everest if somebody would put a flag stick on top.
If you think it's hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball.
Don't play too much golf.  Two rounds a day are plenty.
May thy ball lie in green pastures, and not in still waters.
If I hit it right, it's a slice.  If I hit it left, it's a hook. If I hit it straight, it's a miracle.
Golf is a game invented by the same people who think music comes out of a bagpipe.
It is almost impossible to remember how tragic a place the world is when one is playing golf.
