District 7390 News and Events
Dear Rotarians,
 
The passing of the gavel is literally taking place in over 35,000 Rotary clubs in 529 districts around the world!  It’s no different in District 7390 where 43 new club presidents are receiving the gavel.  They are receiving tried and true programs, honoring club traditions, and ready to add their own ideas and inspire new activities.  The passing of the gavel represents great succession planning, transition, leadership, authority, and most importantly, trust.  On June 29, the gavel was passed from Immediate Past District Governor Kevin Cogan to me as the newly installed District Governor at a ceremony in front of 200 Rotarians and thousands of Central Pennsylvania residents at a Harrisburg Senators game on City Island. It was quite a night ~ and THANK YOU to everyone who was able to attend.
 
Now, just a few days into my role, here are some of my intentions.  As District Governor, I will make every effort to embody Rotary International’s 2017/18 theme Rotary: Making a Difference.  In the words of Rotary International President, Ian Riseley, “Through Rotary, we are Making a Difference in the world; and the more involved we become, the more of a difference Rotary makes to each of us. Rotary challenges us to become better people: to become ambitious in the ways that matter, to strive for higher goals, and to incorporate Service Above Self into our daily lives.”  I couldn’t agree more in terms of the more you put into Rotary, the more you receive.  Making a difference in Rotary means changing and saving lives and the ripple effect of our efforts knows no end.

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.
