is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

FIRST The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

SECOND High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful

occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;

THIRD The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;

FOURTH The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of

business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.


Rotary Code of Conduct provides a framework for ethical behavior that all Rotarians can use, together with The Four-Way Test, in their business and professional activities.



As a Rotarian, I will

  1. Exemplify the core value of integrity in all behaviors and activities

  2. Use my vocational experience and talents to serve in Rotary

  3. Conduct all of my personal, business, and professional affairs ethically, encouraging and fostering high ethical standards as an example to others

  4. Be fair in all dealings with others and treat them with the respect due to them as fellow human beings

  5. Promote recognition and respect for all occupations which are useful to society

  6. Offer my vocational talents: to provide opportunities for young people, to work for the relief of the special needs of others, and to improve the quality of life in my community

  7. Honor the trust that Rotary and fellow Rotarians provide and not do anything that will bring disfavor or reflect adversely on Rotary or fellow Rotarians

  8. Not seek from a fellow Rotarian a privilege or advantage not normally accorded others in a business or professional relationship


of things we think, say and 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?

... Are you ready to share Rotary?


To be effective, every Rotary club needs members. Our club’s ability to assist local and international communities, to support The Rotary Foundation, and to develop leaders capable of serving Rotary beyond the club level is directly related to the strength, size, and involvement of our membership base.

Our own club membership committee, under the directorship of Lennis Trotter and chaired by Linda Porritt, ensures a concerted effort to recruit new members and retain current ones.

This ongoing process is essential to supporting Rotary International, .which needs a dedicated club membership base to succeed.

It is the responsibility of EVERY Rotarian to share Rotary and actively search for prospective members.

Mayor Henry was introduced by President David Andrews. As in the past, Mayor John expressed his pride in being a Rotarian and also the progress and success he sees in Oshawa and Durham Region. He answered several questions including one on the statusof the refurbishing of the Genosha Hotel. A very definite stand has been taken by City Council on what appears to be a “personal” conflict between the people responsible for completing this project.

Pres. Dave thanked Mayor John for his presentation.

Meeting Adjourned by President Dave

The “ideal of service” is the key.

It is an attitude that does not change from one version to the next.

It is an attitude and passion we all have, as Rotarians.
