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.

Last month, we asked our clubs to keep us informed on good speakers.  I have heard from a few clubs with the following recommendations:

  • UWM Amanda Braun, Director of Athletics (Milwaukee Area Clubs preferred)
  • Richard Thieme, Fox Point Writer and Professional Speaker.  Books include UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry, Islands in the Clickstream (2004) and Mind Games (2010).  Website:  http://www.thiemeworks.com/ 
  • For a complete list, please go to "Site Pages" on our district website and click on "Speaker, Program and Volunteer Ideas."

We know that the quality of our programs helps to drive membership.  So if you have the name and contact information of a quality speaker, please pass it our way (district6270@gmail.com)  We will make sure to add him/her to our list.  

Thank you for your consideration.

     How much does it cost to be a member of your club? You can probably answer that question. What do your membership dues cover? That may not be as clear.
     Many Rotarians know that a portion of their dues funds club and district expenses, as well as Rotary International operations worldwide. Few know exactly how that all breaks down. Dues are extremely important, as they are the single biggest source of revenue providing the services you enjoy as a Rotarian.
     As a companion to Rotary's annual report , and on the heels of a $1 dues increase approved by the 2013 Council on Legislation, we answer some frequently asked questions about where your money goes.

     Combating illiteracy has been a focus of Rotary International since 1986 – and for good reason. It has been estimated that there are over 862 million illiterate adults in the world and about two thirds of them are women. Millions more are functionally illiterate, without the reading and writing skills necessary for everyday life. The United Nations has identified illiteracy as a major obstacle to economic, political, and social development. How can you get involved? How can your club be involved? We all need to be a part of the solution for this world wide problem.
