What is the local Rotary Club and why were PCA students honored at a Plymouth Rotary luncheon last week? Those are great questions!
First of all, the Rotary Club is a worldwide organization with over a million members. They call themselves, “People of Action”, and are known locally to tackle issues and problems by coming together as neighbors and friends to create lasting change.
The Rotary has four guiding principles that are used to make decisions about what is said or done and each year they host an annual essay writing contest for local students on this topic. According to their website, “The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:
Of the things we think, say or do:
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?”
This year, we are pleased to announce that four PCA students were winners of this Rotary Essay Contest! On Friday, May 10, 2019, these students were honored at a Rotarian luncheon in Plymouth. Congratulations to:
