Four Way Test
FOUR WAY TEST

 Of the things we think, say or do:

1. Is it the TRUTH?

2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?

3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?

4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?"

 

Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The Four-Way Test has been translated
into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways.

Vinings Rotary Club Raises $85,000 for Charities for 5K Downhill Run!!

 
Locally, our signature annual fund raising event, the successful Vinings Down Hill 5K, enables our club to grant worthwhile charities financial resources to continue and build. Additionally, we’ve initiated and sponsor with manpower and resources many projects.
 
 
 
 

Local Service Project

  • Vinings Cemetery Clean-up, Saturday, February 20 at 10 am. Meet at Vinings Cemetery at 10 am with work gloves.  Please let Wesley.Roberts@thomashorstemeyer.com know if you will attend.
  • Save the Date - Read Across America Day at Teasley – March 2nd.  Guest readers are invited to read during the school day between 8:30 and 1:00. Amy Crosby, Library Media Specialist will provide a variety of books to choose from or you may bring a cherished book of your own. Readers may also choose which grade level or levels they wish to read to, Kindergarten through Fifth, and the number of classes you would like to visit.  However, we certainly do not expect you to stay all day and just one class would be terrific if that fits into your schedule.

WHAT IS “EVERY ROTARIAN, EVERY YEAR” ALL ABOUT?

 

This initiative by the Board of Trustees of The Rotary Foundation:

 

Encourages EVERY ROTARIAN to participate in a Foundation program that truly makes a difference in the world each and EVERY YEAR, and

 

Encourages EVERY ROTARIAN to contribute to the Foundation’s Annual Fund at an amount in which they are able, EVERY YEAR. 

 

The Rotary Foundation even has banners for clubs where every member contributes some amount to the Foundation and the annual per capita is US$100 and a banner for clubs where every member contributes at least US$100 per year…..think about what you can do to help us meet our Annual Giving goal…which is the goal to make positive change in the world around us?

 

IF YOU ARE A PART OF THE “EVERY ROTARIAN, EVERY YEAR” INITIATIVE WE PERSONALLY THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF THE ROTARY FOUNDATION AND ITS WORK.
