Liberty Manor - A Place of Dignity, Respect & Acknowledgement!

Service Above Self

Brandon Rotary hosted a benefit for Liberty Manor for Veterans on October 17th at California Pizza at Brandon Town Center. The mission of Rotarians is , “Service Above Self”. The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service

  1. 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
  2. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life
  3. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

This objective is further set against Rotary’s “Four Way Test”, which is used to see if a planned action is compatible with the Rotarian spirit.  The Four Way Test was developed by Rotarian and entrepreneur Herbert J. Taylor during the Great Depression, as a set of guidelines for restoring faltering businesses. It was adopted as the standard of ethics by Rotary in 1942. It is still seen as a standard for ethics in business today.
