Dear Fellow Rotarians,
 
A community event hosted by Executive Women International (EWI) and supported by Leadership Harrisburg Area (LHA) is featuring Rotary International Vice President Dean Rohrs on Thursday, March 15 beginning at 5:30 PM at the Radisson.  This event is open to the public.  An opportunity like this comes once in a blue moon and I encourage everyone to try and attend.  In fact, bring your family members, friends, and associates and let them get a real sense of Rotary in action.   
 
Dean’s story starts in Zambia where she enjoyed a world shielded from apartheid until she was 14 years old. That’s when the revolution made its way to the Congo. Her mother was head of the Red Cross and led the evacuation of many refugees. Dean was called to stand up against the prosecutors and was imprisoned at the age of 16. It was soon after that moment when Dean Rohrs set forth to create a more peaceful world. She harnessed the strength of her fear and scars to foster education, fight disease, and promote peace in some of the most abominable circumstances in some of the most remote areas of the world.
 
Dean leveraged the power of Rotary International to gain support for her efforts and has broken the cycles of poverty in numerous South African Villages literally saving thousands of young lives. Her story of bringing peace and human understanding to all landed Dean in Canada where she encourages international audiences to become messengers of change.
 
You don’t want to miss out on this presentation which is sure to be inspirational!

The Rotary Four-Way Test

The Four-Way Test (of the things we think, say or do):
  1. Is it TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOOD WILL 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: 
  • 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.
