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.
