4 Way Test
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?

The Object of Rotary
The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster: 

1. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service
2. High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society.
3. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life.
4. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

    Hopefully we still have a lot of days ahead of us for golfing, boating,  picnicking  and maybe even swimming – but September always brings the realization that it is time to put ourselves back on schedule.   For some that means back to school, for others it may mean a heavier workload and more meetings!
     
As you complete you calendar for the months ahead, please take a minute now to jot down these important events:

DO YOU...

  • Talk about your vocation in your club, and take time to learn about fellow members’ 
    vocations.
  • Use your professional skills to serve a community. 
  • Practice your profession with integrity, and inspire others to behave ethically through 
    your own words and actions
  • Help a young person achieve his or her career aspirations.
  • Guide and encourage others in their professional development.

If you do any of these things, you are performing vocational service. And if vocational service motivates and energizes you, then you’re in the right place, because vocational service is the very essence of Rotary. It is what sets Rotary apart from other service organizations.

 The Rotarian Magazine is our link to the greater Rotary world. The pictures and stories tell us of the wonderful work that is being done, in and through Rotary, to make the world a better, safer and a more peaceful place…all because we are advancing the key elements of social justice, health projects, and educational opportunity and alleviating the dire effects of poverty.
     
A person is not free if they are hungry. A man is not free when he has to watch his children die because of the lack of clean water or adequate food. A mother will not be free if her sick child cannot receive medical care and when people are not free they will seek social justice even if it means going to war to achieve it.
     
Our magazine, paid for in our RI dues, is not junk mail. It makes you and me “literate” in the great story of Rotary. Read it. Share it with others. Drop it off in a public area where literature is offered, a dentist's reception area, the waiting room at your local hospital or when you go to your accountant's office to pick up your tax filings. Plant the seeds of Rotary by sharing our great story.

     Healthy, vibrant and growing clubs require that all members feel they have a voice in the club.  Conducting regular member surveys is one way to improve member satisfaction in Rotary and increase member retention.  There are many tools, hi and low tech, available to help.

    The 2014-15 Directory is officially ready to go.  District Governor Mary Beth Seiser will deliver a small number of booklet copies to clubs on her Annual Visits.  For those clubs that Mary Beth has already been to, yours will be delivered by your Assistant Governor in the very near future.
     There are already a few changes to the paper copy:  

  • The Mitchell Field Rotary Club was inadvertently left out. Our sincere apologies to this club.  
  • The Oshkosh Southwest Club has been added to AG Jeff Reed's list of clubs.  
  • Sheboygan West also had some secretary and email changes.

All of these changes have been made to the online version of the directory.  This directory can be found on our website, right hand column, under "site pages" - "District Directory."    If you have any other changes that need to be made throughout the year, please do not hesitate to let me know at district6270@gmail.com

As always, the online version will have the most up to the minute changes.  Please check here when in doubt.
