Rotary Four Way Test

Is it the truth?
Is it fair to all concerned?
Will it build good will and better friendships?
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?


Four Avenues of Service

Based on the Object of Rotary, the Four Avenues of Service are Rotary's philosophical cornerstone and the foundation on which club activity is based:

  • Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the effective functioning of the club.
  • Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards.
  • Community Service covers the projects and activities the club undertakes to improve life in its community.
  • International Service encompasses actions taken to expand Rotary's humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace.

The Rotary Club of Parksville AM is pleased to honour Mike Gillen of Kestrel Helicopters with a Paul Harris Fellowship for his efforts in removing the garbage on Little Mountain.   Click here for the story of how this all began. 

The debris that has accumulated at the base of Little Mountain is inaccessible by road and the only way to remove it is through a helicopter lift.  Rotary and the residents of Little Mountain are indebted to Mike for his generosity in helping to ensure that Little Mountain is returned to its pristine state.

Our Foundation
The Rotary Foundation transforms donations into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world.  During the past 100 years, the Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects.  The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

More than 90 percent of donations go directly to supporting service projects around the world, carried out by 35,000 Rotary  clubs.  Through donations to the Rotary Foundation, we’ve wiped out 99.9 percent of all polio cases in the world.

The Paul Harris Society recognizes members and friends of the  Rotary Foundation who contribute $1000 annually to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus or approved global grants.To learn more about the Paul Harris Society, click here.
