He said when we think of peace it is not just the relationship between two countries or people, but could also be as simple and personal as being at peace with one self. He challenged each member to live their lives in such a way so as not to be disappointed when you near the end and to be able to look back on your life and feel good about what you did and what you are leaving behind.
District Governor Ed also took time to recognize the Club and several members. Rotarian Jeremy Withers, Membership Chair, was recognized for his innovative membership drive that gave each Rotarian who brought potential members to the club meeting, a chance to win prizes. Rotarian Bob Bellamy was recognized for being nominated to win the District Governors Four-Way Test Award.
For Rotary, the Four-Way Test is the cornerstone of all action. As we think or act, we ask ourselves:
- Is it the TRUTH?
- Is it FAIR to all concerned?
- Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
- Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
Chicora Rotary meets every for lunch every Friday at the Dune Club.
