Rotary's 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 Good Will and Better Friendships?
                                                           4) Will it be Beneficial to All Concerned?
