Well, the Rotary Club of Salisbury was back in business last Thursday night, February 18, for our first in-person meeting, along with Zoom capability, in months. Thirty persons took part in our first meeting of the year, enjoying the fellowship, learning who was in line to become 2022-2023 president, and celebrating members who had birthdays in December, January, and February.

One highlight of the evening was 50-year member Gordon Gladden reading the letter he received in 1971 welcoming him to the Rotary Club of Salisbury and Gordon sharing this thoughts on how Rotary has impacted his life. Good job Gordon.

The Rotary Club of Salisbury is seeking the nomination of individuals in the community who, in their everyday lives, are a living example of the Rotary Motto: Service Above Self.

The 4-Way Test Award is the Club’s most prestigious award honoring exceptional community and volunteer service. Individuals to be considered should exemplify the tenets of the Rotary 4-Way Test:

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

Nomination forms may be obtained by contacting Ken Montville at or by calling 410-600-2011 or on the Rotary Club of Salisbury website,  A list of previous 4-Way Test Award recipients also may be found on the website. The deadline for nominations is Monday, April 5, 2021. Rotary members are not eligible.

The Rotary 4-Way Test was first conceived in 1932 at the height of the Great Depression by a Chicago businessman who was faced with the challenge of saving a major company from bankruptcy. Looking for a way to keep his business solvent, he sought a short yardstick of ethics to every aspect of business. As a result, a climate of trust and goodwill developed among dealers, customers, and employees, and the 4-Way Test was credited with returning the company to a thriving status.

The Rotary Club of Salisbury, following COVID-19 social distancing and masking requirements, meets Thursdays at 6:00 p.m. in the Rotary Scout and Community Center at 1715 Riverside Drive in Salisbury.

As part of The Rotary Club of Salisbury's 2020/2021 strategic plan, we are trying to make more persons aware of the club, what we do, and how they can become part of the club so they can become People of Action.
Together we can better inform others about our Rotary Club's impact on our community while attracting new members who want to pursue service to others while also making great friends!
