The Four-Way Test

The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:
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?

Perspectives on Membership:

I was an exchange student almost 30 years ago. Now I am amazed at the continued impact my previous exchange and current membership has had on my life. Rotary has opened my eyes to the world. Lesley Paul, Pharmacist

-providing service to others; connecting with the community. Laura Wilson, Senior Private Banker

When I retired, it was time to give back to the world. After seeing firsthand how the poor in some countries live, my life completely changed with the goal of helping these people. John Van Laar, Retired, PDG

Camaraderie with like-minded individuals;friends/colleagues who look out for each other and provide support in challenging times. 1+1=3. John Stransky, Investments

Rotary has given me the opportunity to give back to my community and to volunteer in a developing country. Barbara Edgell, Retired

It is the best hour of the week for me! Martin Oosterveld, Club  President, Realtor

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
Centennial celebration honors 20 noteworthy global grant projects
Through The Rotary Foundation, Rotary members have supported thousands of projects that promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, save mothers and children, support education, and grow local economies.

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...

1. Tesoro
2. Gustav Chophouse and Bar
3. The Pottery Restaurant
The 40 foot sea container we packed in Barrie in June has now completed its long journey to Igoma, Mwanza, Tanzania. Our partner club, the Rotary Club of Igoma will  unpack the contents and distribute them to the 6 schools in Igoma. The library books, chairs, desks, blackboards, pianos and school supplies will  be distributed to benefit 10,000 school children in the Igoma area. We did our work in the spring and the benefits come in their spring on the other side of the equator and more than half way around the world. Stay tuned for more frequent updates of the goods being distributed.
