Four-Way Test Committee
This committee is charged with the responsibility of working to ensure that
members of our Rotary Club remain aware of the Four-Way Test, and to publicize
the Four-Way Test in the public and private schools of our area and all other
One practice established in our Club is reciting the Four-Way Test in unison,
led by the President, at the close of each Tuesday meeting. This practice has
changed the Four-Way Test from something that most Rotarians in McAlester thought
about only a few times a year to something so ingrained that members rarely
need to look for the words on the giant Four-Way Test banner which hangs behind
the podium at each meeting during the joint recitation.
The Club also endeavours to have at least one Tuesday meeting program center
completely on the Four-Way Test, quite often including personal testimonials
of how it has helped individual Rotarians in their lives and work.
This committee is to help the Club and its members live out the principles
of The Object of Rotary, in relations among vocations and also employer-employee
relations and the many other relationships presented in our business lives.
This committee is charged with encouraging the spirit of "volunteerism"
among our Club members and others in our community. When one of our members
demonstrates that spirit in a particularly outstanding manner, the committee
can nominate him or her to the Club President for the honor of "Rotary
Volunteer of the Year."
