Working together with the Stillwater Sunrise and Lake Elmo Rotary Clubs, we had 37 Rotarians plus 12 family members work in the booth and/or at Trinity during the day. Great joint effort! We sold more than 800 cups of coffee and hot chocolate. Some shifts were crazy busy and others were a bit slow, but everyone seemed to enjoy it and had great fellowship, we shared information about Rotary, and raised funds for Polio Plus. Kudos to Katie Rolf and Bob Eiselt for coordinating!
From the earliest days of the organization, Rotarians were concerned with promoting high ethical standards in their professional lives. One of the world's most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics is The 4-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor (who later served as RI president) when he was asked to take charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy. This 24-word code of ethics for employees to follow in their business and professional lives 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. Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The 4-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways.
