Rotary concentrates on seven areas: promoting peace, improving health through disease prevention and treatment, improving the health of mothers and children, water and sanitation, education, economic development, and supporting the environment.
Rotary International, to which we belong, is a humanitarian service organization that brings together business and professional leaders in order to provide community service, promote integrity, and advance goodwill, peace, and understanding in the world.
Our meetings are back to twice a month: Second Thursday of each month is in person, and Fourth Thursday via Zoom.

The four-way test of the things we think, say or do:
1) Is it the TRUTH? 2) Is it FAIR to all concerned? 3) Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? 4) Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?"
The Four-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor (who later served as RI president) when he was asked to take charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy. This 24-word test for employees to follow in their business and professional lives became the guide for sales, production, advertising, and all relations with dealers and customers, and the survival of the company is credited to this simple philosophy. Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The Four-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways.
WHAT IS ROTARY AND WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN OUR CLUB?
Rotary International and all of its clubs world wide share one common theme: Service above self. Nowhere is this truer than at the Transcona Rotary.
Rotary is for people who want to give back. Around the world it is a community of professionals who share a common focus of cultural awareness and responsible citizenship.
Each member who joins the Rotary does so for the opportunity to serve their local and global community; for growth and development in ethics, world understanding, equality, and peace; and for the fellowship of like-minded members with a common purpose and goal.
