Rotary Four Way Test

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?


Four Avenues of Service

Based on the Object of Rotary, the Four Avenues of Service are Rotary's philosophical cornerstone and the foundation on which club activity is based:

  • Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the effective functioning of the club.
  • Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards.
  • Community Service covers the projects and activities the club undertakes to improve life in its community.
  • International Service encompasses actions taken to expand Rotary's humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace.

Currently ...
We are on the home stretch in our goal of cleaning up Little Mountain of the trash and debris that has been a blight on this pristine area for so many years.
 
This initiative began in May of 2019 and the goal is to finish the job in May of 2020.  So far, through the support of Mike Gillen from Kestrel Helicopters, two major lifts have resulted in the removal of 13 tons of waste.
 
Preparing the mountain for a helicopter lift is a labour intensive and backbreaking job. 

Volunteers must work on the slope of the mountain base to sort and pack garbage into bags that can be picked up by the helicopter. 
 
After the first lift, Rotarians and Little Mountain residents were joined in this task by the BC Chapter of the Backcountry Hunters and Anglers who have given the project a tremendous boost through their muscle and enthusiasm. 
 
 
Our Foundation
The Rotary Foundation transforms donations into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world.  During the past 100 years, the Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects.  The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

More than 90 percent of donations go directly to supporting service projects around the world, carried out by 35,000 Rotary  clubs.  Through donations to the Rotary Foundation, we’ve wiped out 99.9 percent of all polio cases in the world.

The Paul Harris Society recognizes members and friends of the  Rotary Foundation who contribute $1000 annually to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus or approved global grants.To learn more about the Paul Harris Society, click here.
