ABOUT ROTARY INTERNATIONAL
Rotary International is a worldwide organization comprised of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
There are 33,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, Rotary’s main objective is service—in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.
In 1932, Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor created The Four-Way Test. The test, which has been translated into more than 100 languages, asks the following questions:
"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?" Rotarians around the world strive to live their lives in accordance with The Four-Way Test.
ABOUT DUPONT ROTARY
Sponsored by Rotary International, Dupont Rotary is a service-oriented club comprised of 36 committed individuals from the greater Washington, D.C. area, whose professional and service aspirations extend far beyond the confines of the Beltway. Dupont Rotary is a member of Rotary District 7620.
Since its chartering in 2012, Dupont Rotary members have involved themselves in numerous service projects at home and abroad, partnering with organizations such as Best Kids, FAIR Girls, and Martha's Table in Washington and participating in peace and conflict resolution initiatives with partnering Rotary Clubs in Uganda. Dupont Rotary's area of influence is anything but small, and we're looking to expand our initiatives and resources. For more information on our current projects, click here.
Dupont Rotary meets on Tuesdays from 7:00-8:00 (with fellowship beginning at 6:30) at Rewind by Decades in Dupont Circle. Please join us at our next meeting!
