Experience Rotary

Rotary membership is made up of business professionals and community leaders and provides an opportunity to forge new friendships, business relationships and share the rewards of helping others through volunteer service.

The Rotary club meeting is a chance for members to socialize, network, and enjoy a short program of interest related to business or the community. Members also plan service activities based on local needs and their own interests and talents as well as team up with clubs in other countries to carry out international service projects, enhancing member's cross-cultural understanding.

Rotary’s
Four Way Test


The cornerstone of all Rotarian actions, The Four-Way Test, of the things we think, say or do...

Is it the TRUTH?

Is it FAIR to all concerned?

Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?

Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

The test is one of the hallmarks of Rotary. Since it was developed in 1932 by Herbert J. Taylor, who later became RI president, it has never ceased to be relevant. Its four brief questions are not based on culture or religion. Instead, they are a simple checklist for ethical behavior. They transcend generations and national borders.
