Rotary was established over 100 years ago with a founding principal of promoting strong ethics, values and integrity in the professional lives of each of its members and recognizing the importance and responsibility of contributing to the local and global community.  Each year the month of October is dedicated to this important aspect of Rotary.

"The Four Way Test" is a Rotarians fundamental guideline for conduct in his or her professional life.  The four way test asks these questions of the things we 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?
