On July 29, 2015, a distinguished delegation from Wum Cameroon visited the Blue Ridge Mountain Rotary Club to thank the club for the tremendous dedication and effort Rotary has done in providing clean water to their village of Wum Cameroon. The Village of Wum has a population of 40,000 people with a current mortality rate of 450 people a year ....Mostly children. The "Wum Water" project was initiated by Rotarian Tom Dunnells and his Rotarian counter part Mathias Ofon of Th...e Bamenda Rotary Club,cost $241,000 US and took seven years to complete. It is a low maintenance sustainable, gravity fed system from a spring source 8 miles away consisting of a Roughing Filter, Slow Sand Filter, Storage Tank and Distribution system.

The delegation consisting of fon (chief) Mathias Bahambi, Kangsten Buhmbi, Mayor Anthony Dianbong and Dr Nazy Ebua of Boston all of whom expressed their deepest appreciation to Rotary and its members for their personal sacrifice and commitment that has resulted in seeing a dream come true for their people. As one peron said " water is life and you have provide our village with it".

On 7/15/15 we had the pleasure of having Heritage Theater Director B...ob Chapel as our guest speaker! He brought along with him a few of his cast members that gave us a small preview of their upcoming show that left us all wanting more! Thank you for visiting! https://www.facebook.com/HeritageTheatreFestival?fref=nf

ImageWhat would it take to change the world? Rotary's 1.2 million members believe it starts with a commitment to Service Above Self. In more than 34,000 clubs worldwide, you'll find members volunteering in communities at home and abroad to support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio.

The Four-Way Test

From the earliest days of the organization, Rotarians were concerned with promoting high ethical standards in their professional lives. One of the world's most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics is The Four-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor (who later served as RI president) when he was asked to take charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy.

This 24-word test for employees to follow in their business and professional lives became the guide for sales, production, advertising, and all relations with dealers and customers, and the survival of the company is credited to this simple philosophy. Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The Four-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways. It asks the following four questions:

"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?"

On December 6th and 7th, 10 members of the Boys & Girls Club members Rang Bells at Sam’s club.

The kids were super excited and competed amongst themselves to see who could get the most amount of patrons to make a contribution.

They walked up to people, sang, and danced to raise money!

Image

Over half of patrons at Sam's Club they spoke to made a donation!

This same group of kids, 11 to 14 year olds, have completed over 185 hours of service to their community and club in the past 4 months!

Thank you for the opportunity!
