4 way test and honesty

I wish more folks would join the Rotary and believe in the 4 way test. Paul Harris when he started Rotary 100 years ago, found that if he followed certain principals in business he was much more successful. The principals became the Rotary FOUR-WAY TEST. Just ask yourself of all the things we say, do and think: 1. Is it the truth? 2. Is it fair for all concerned? 3.Will it build Good Will and Better Friendships? 4. Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?

If everyone could just tell the truth and be fair the world would be much better. If you cannot negotiate a solution to a problem you are having with someone, it seems one party will attempt to force his/her will on the other even by violence if necessary. Folks will get so angry that reason goes by the wayside and they consider murder is the only solution. What a waste

The JnR Hotel is run on the Rotary beliefs - honesty and integrity and the businesses we patronize do the same if they want our business.

Do you remember that President Franklin D Rosevelt founded the National foundation for Infantile Paralysis in 1938? It has since been renamed to the March of Dimes. Do you remember Albert Sabin developed the oral polio vacacine (He died 3/3/93)? Did you know in 1953 $70 in dimes was stolen in Alturas from a display there by 3 youths? Did you know the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation awarded Rotary International a challange of $355 million toward the eradication of polio? Do you know what I have in common with Mia Farrow and Itzhak Perlman? We survived polio. It is indisciminate. Did you know that the Rotary Internation goal for 2011 is to finish erradication of Polio? Did you know we have been fighting polio for 23 years?

You can donate to the fund in person at the JnR Hotel in Cedarville (I don't have a paypal link yet on the website, but will) or by credit card on the web at
