Celebrating 50 years of ‘Service above Self’
Chartered in 1973, the Feasterville Rotary is part of Rotary International, the world’s first volunteer service organization.
Rotary’s 35,000+ clubs in over 200 countries and territories encourage high ethical standards and carry out humanitarian projects to address issues such as poverty, health, hunger, education, and the environment.
Rotarians strive to follow Rotary’s Four-Way Test of 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?
