District 7390 News and Events
 
Dear Rotarians,
 
Welcome to the new Rotary Year, 2016-17. On July 1, the entire leadership of Rotary International changes hands. I know of no other organization that does this – not governments, religious faiths, nor other volunteer organizations. On July 1, there will be 535 new district governors, and over 34,000 new club presidents. That means that on average, 5 thousand Rotary bells will ring each weekday this week, calling 250,000 Rotarians to order each day from Monday to Friday, and even on Saturdays in some parts of the world. Places like the Hotel Sofitel on Monday in Burkina Faso Africa, on Tuesday at the Rock Hotel in Gibraltar, at Base Marambio Antarctica on Wednesday, on Thursday at the Mertiton Hotel in Tallinn Estonia, on Friday at Club Aleman in Almendral Chile, and at the Calcutta Punjab India Club on Saturday. This is the organization that you belong to. Bigger than any of us individually, but individually we can take part in all of it. Visit another Rotary club whenever you travel and bring back a new idea to your club.
 
 
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 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.
