ROTARY 4-WAY TEST

The Four-Way Test  of the things we think, say or do is a test used by Rotarians world-wide as a moral code for personal and business relationships. The test can be applied to almost any aspect of life.   The test was scripted by Herbert J. Taylor an American from Chicago.  It was later adopted by Rotary International, the global federation of Rotary service clubs.

CLUB HISTORY

1978 – 1980 Robert Stonum was the charter president and Neil Stonum was the charter secretary.

In 1989 Rotary International allowed clubs to amend their bylaws to allow women as members as a result of a 1987 Supreme Court ruling. Robert and Neil agreed that no one woman should have to overcome the anticipated backlash from members of a theretofore exclusively male club without support.

Robert Stonum therefore proposed Kay Mickel and Neil Stonum proposed Marguerite Collins who were accepted and simultaneously inducted into membership.

Early accomplishments include the bathrooms/picnic shelter at the town park, an ambulance shelter for the hospital, collecting packaging and shipping educational books to Tonga, building and installing bus shelters for the school children, initiating Grad Night, student scholarships and the Rotary Relays.
