4-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?

Message from the Club President
Dear members,

We will be choosing our Student of the year next week as our student banquet will be June 6th at Gentelin’s.  Our schedule thru 6/30 will be

May 16- Gentelin’s. Speaker-Al Womack
May 23-social meeting-TB
May 30- Off- Memorial Day
June 6- Student of year Banquet
June 13- Board Meeting-Quarterly Assessment- Gentelin’s
June 20-TBD
June 27- Installation Banquet Premier Hotel

I would like to bring attention to an issue we have with weekly meals, so I ask for help to all members. Recently, we have increased the cost of meals that Gentelin’s serve because of the increase in food costs and our Club’s request to have a larger protein portion served with our meal. We also guarantee Gentelin’s a minimum of 25 meals per week.  

Katie emails all members on every Tuesday requesting members to RSVP to her they wish to reserve a meal.  I in turn must report those numbers to Ryan Gentelin by noon on Saturday as he requires the count to make preparations for Monday.  

It is not unusual that we have members coming to our meetings without making a reservation. In the past, we have accommodated those members, which results in smaller portions for those members who made reservations along with making issues for Gentelin’s staff. 
We can no longer accommodate those that do not respond to Katie.  All are welcome and we want to serve everyone, but if you do not respond to Katie you might not get a meal at our meeting.  

So PLEASE RESPOND and make that reservation to Katie so we do not have to inconvenience anyone. 

Thank you

Steve Schwartz
