About Mount Airy Rotary

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:

I.  The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

II.  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;

III.  The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;

IV.  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 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?

Paul Harris

Organizer of the first Rotary Club in Chicago in 1905, later became the first President of "Rotary International" in 1910.  He served in this position for two years, from 1910 until 1912.  Thus, the founder of the Rotary idea, who declined to be president of the first club, became the first president of the worldwide organization, Rotary International.  The man selected to be the first president was the one of the other founding members, Silvester Schiele.
