Rotary's Vision:
"Together we see a world where people unite and take action, to create lasting change - across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves".

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 of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
  • THIRD: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s 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.

The Four-Way Test

The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:
Of the things we think, say or do

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

President Joel's First Meeting
We were delighted to welcome Rtn. Roger Kirton from RC Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago to our meeting on July 9th.  
President Joel used the meeting to shoe a clip from RI President Mark Maloney's address which encapsulated the strategic pillars of Rotary starting on July 1st this year. These "priorities are expanded upon in the read more section below.  RI President Mark asserts that as Rotarians reach out and connect with others, we will form deeper relationships than we ever thought possible and we will through these relationships make lasting change - across the globe, in our communities and in ourselves. 
This is an exciting time to be a Rotarian as we build on the momentum that was generated in the last Rotary year as we were the Inspiration to the world in so many ways.
President Joel then showed a video of a speech at the Hamburg Convention by Rotaractor Chris Wells who spoke impressively on Fellowship and Doing Good in the World - Dogoodery!
An excellent meeting of fellowship and some stayed on after for a final drink together.
The Wheelchairs Have Arrived

"Old Muscle Better than No Muscle"

When PP Bobby heard PP Leathan's less than charitable comment about the average age of the Rotarians who came out to help offload the container, he jovially retorted that "old muscle was better than no muscle".  Now I am not sure if PP Bobby was suggesting that PP Leathan was either old, or had no muscle, but between us we had a great time and supported by Young President Leevie Harelle and Rtn.Sean Devaux (borderline PP Konrad) and a couple of  "young " men sent by PP Joe to take his place, the older (not by any means old) guard got the job done in an impressive three hours.
Saturday July 13th a troop of Rotarians, including your editor, showed up at the Rodney Bay Boat Yard to destuff the 40 foot container of wheelchairs.  These chairs were purchased by the Hotel & Tourism Association's Tourism Enhancement Fund   The World Wheelchair Foundation  provided logistical support and ensured that the best price was obtained while the Rotary Clubs on the island will ensure that the chairs are distributed to those who need them most.
Wednesday July 17th there will be a formal presentation ceremony at St. James Club at 10.00 am.  Rotarians are invited to attend.
This is a great example of partnerships for the benefit of the community.  This is exactly what Rotary has been encouraging as we recognize that we cannot make the deep impact that we know  is required, without the support of others who share the same objectives as we do.  Together we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change...
We owe a debt of gratitude to Rodney Bay Boat Yard for allowing us to destuff the container in their secure yard and for storing a large number of the wheelchairs in a storage container in the yard.  Thanks go the Boat Yard manager Milton Mc Kensey  for assisting us to open the container and for driving the forklift.
Thanks also go to Rtn. Dahlia and Ramco Plastics for storing approximately half of the wheelchairs.  Partnerships again!
