Home Page Stories
 
There was a good turnout of Rotarians at Capes Park in Courtenay to install 40 plus trees of several species under the guidance of Tyler Johns of the City of Courtenay Parks Department.  The forecast rain didn't happen which made for a more pleasant work party than would otherwise have been the case. There were plenty of roots from the nearby large trees to contend with but a pair of loppers and Gord  swinging a pick made short work of them.

  A Heartfelt 'Thank You' 
to everyone who attended our recent "Have-a-Heart" dinner theatre - "Boppin' With The Beach St Players" and to the many volunteers and performers who helped make the event the success it was.
 
A lot of fun and nostalgia was enjoyed...

Rotary International, the world's first service club organization, is made-up of some 33,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. It's members form a global network of business, professional and community leaders who volunteer their time and talents to serve their communities around the world.

From the earliest days of the organization, Rotarians were concerned with promoting high ethical standards in their professional lives. One of the world's most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics is The Four-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor (who later served as RI president) when he was asked to take charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy.
This 24-word test for employees to follow in their business and professional lives became the guide for sales, production, advertising, and all relations with dealers and customers, and the survival of the company is credited to this simple philosophy. Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The Four-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways. It asks the following four questions: "Of the things we think, say or do:

Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOOD WILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
