GOOD MORNING DELMARVA - The Rotary Club of Salisbury is seeking the nomination of individuals in the community who, in their everyday life, are a living example of the Rotary motto: Service Above Self.
The 2013 4-Way Test Award is the Club's most prestigious award honoring exceptional community and volunteer service. Individuals to be considered should exemplify the tenets of the Rotary 4-Way Test: Is it the TRUTH? Is it FAIR? Will it build GOODWILL and better FRIENDSHIPS? Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
Nomination forms may be obtained by calling 4-Way Test Chairperson Barbara Leonard at 410-219-9172. The deadline for nominations is April 2nd. A ceremony to name the award recipient will be held on Thursday, April 25, 2013. The 2012 honoree, Charles R. "Chip" Dashiell, Jr., will be the event's keynote speaker.
The Rotary 4-Way Test was first conceived in 1932 at the height of the Great Depression by a Chicago businessman who was faced with the challenge of saving a major company from bankruptcy. Looking for a way to keep his business solvent, he sought a short yardstick of ethics to every aspect of business. As a result, a climate of trust and goodwill developed among dealers, customers, and employees, and the 4-Way Test was credited with returning the company to a thriving status.
Previous recipients of the Rotary Club of Salisbury's 4-Way Test Award include Peggy Bradford, Virginia Layfield, Frank Perdue, Frank Morris, King Burnett, William Middleton, Orville Penn, Marty Neat, Morgan Hazel and Anthony Sarbanes.
The Rotary Club of Salisbury meets every Thursday at 6:00 p.m. in the Rotary Scout and Community Center on Riverside Drive in Salisbury. To learn more about the Rotary Club of Salisbury or to obtain membership information, please contact Membership Committee Chairman Bob Brown at 410-749-3873.
