District 7390 News and Events
May is Youth Services Month. I hope all clubs in District 7390 have had the joy of working with our youth! There are many opportunities. Such as Rotary Youth Exchange, Student of the Month, Dictionary projects, Interact, and Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA). Club involvement with youth is a great investment in our future. A former RYLA student, Corey Graybill, just joined the Rotary Club of Eastern York County this month. He remembered the impact that
Rotary made on him as a high school student and now wants to give back. Wow – you never know how important our programs are to others and here is one great example.
I have two extraordinary requests that I hope you will heed: (1) find the postcard I gave you during my club official visit in the fall and mail it back to me with any words about what Rotary meant to you this year; (2) make a contribution to The Rotary Foundation this month, large or small, so that we can achieve 100% giving! Remember, this year marks the 100th anniversary of The Rotary Foundation. We are on our way to a record year of giving.
The Four-Way Test (of the things we think, say or do):
- Is it TRUTH?
- Is it FAIR to all concerned?
- Will it build GOOD WILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
- Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
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:
- First - the development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
- Second - High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying by each Rotarian of his occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
- Third - The application of the ideal of service by every Rotarian to his personal, business, and community life;
- Fourth - The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
