We had a beautiful day this past Thursday for our Golf Tournament, where we raised money for Feedmore.
The weather was ideal for 17 of 18 holes, and then it was like that scene in Caddyshack , but without the lightening.
There are so many people for The Rotary Club of Short Pump to thank:
and, as Club President, I want to personally thank all my fellow Rotarians for their hard work in putting together this event.
Have a great day serving others.
Good Afternoon World Rotarians – this is the first Short Pump Rotary Club post to to publicized with Facebook. And it’s the second blog post ever for the Short Pump Rotary Club website.
The Four-Way Test is part of Rotary’s Guiding Principles
THE FOUR-WAY TEST
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
I attended a District 7600 a while back and there was a speaker who discussed adding a fifth rule, and we’ve taken to doing so at Short Pump Rotary:

Enjoy your day serving others. Have fun. Be safe.
Good afternoon Rotary World – the backstretch of 2016 is upon and there is a lot left to do.
There is a lot going on at Short Pump Rotary Club. We are working hard to organized a fantastic golf tournament where the proceeds will go to FeedMore.
There’s grant work to be done – a lot more on that later.
Have a great day everyone!
