One of the most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics in the world is the Rotary 4-Way Test. It was created by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor in 1932 when he was asked to take charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy. Taylor looked for a way to save the struggling company mired in depression-caused financial difficulties. He drew up a 24-word code of ethics for all employees to follow in their business and professional lives. The 4-Way Test became the guide for sales, production, advertising and all relations with dealers and customers, and the survival of the company is credited to this simple philosophy.

Herb Taylor became president of Rotary International in 1954-55. The 4-Way Test was adopted by Rotary in 1943 and has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways.

Of the things we think, say or do:

1. IS IT THE TRUTH?

2. IS IT FAIR TO ALL CONCERNED?

3. WILL IT BUILD GOODWILL AND BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?

4. WILL IT BE BENEFICIAL TO ALL CONCERNED?

If you're interested in learning more about the Wabash Rotary or Rotary International this is the place.  As a club established in 1918, we continue to be vibrant and active in the community.

Each year our service projects raise much needed funds for local organizations.  Our "Done in a Day" projects are a unique way for club members to actively serve without long time commitments. "Done in a Day" projects include: sorting clothes for a local mission; reading to children; a blanket drive; Operation Elf; and planting trees.  Our Annual United Fund Gold Outing raises over $8,000 for the Wabash County United Fund.  We have also pledged $25,000 over 5 years to the local YMCA made possible by our Annual Pizza Wagon Fundraising event.

Our Monday Lunch meetings are an exciting way to get to know others with a passion for serving and giving back.  Each week members are treated to different and dynamic topics and speakers.  The food of course, is fantastic.  Our sergeants' in arms are talented as they look for the "scoop" on attending members for a $1 donation.  "Happy Bucks" provide an opportunity to generously celebrate and share good news and events with your fellow Rotarians. The "fines" and donations are given to FISH, a local food pantry.

The WabashRotary is a worthwhile stop if you need to make up a meeting.  We encourage and warmly welcome all visiting Rotarians.

If you're interested in club membership, please contact any club member!  We'd love to have you.  Enjoy a unique opportunity to give back to the community, network with fellow business professionals, share in member memories, bask in the fellowship and camaradarie of other Rotarians who love to Serve Above Self.
