What is Rotary

We are neighbours, community leaders and global citzens uniting for the common good. 

Rotarians worldwide are inspired by the Rotary theme of "Service Above Self" and are guided by reference to 'The Four-Way Test'. In particular, 'The Four-Way Test' challenges Rotarians, in everything they do, to ask of themselves:

"Of the things we think say or do:

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?"
