"Honesty and integrity are virtues worth working towards." George Washington

What are the qualities of leadership that can help to make an impact on individual lives and the communities we live in? The last year plus we have seen our lives change dramatically through the devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now as we begin to return to life we led prior to this event, how to adjust to the shared experiences from this time period? What do we no longer take for granted? How do we want to live our lives? Are we more willing to take an active part in shaping our communities through more active participation?

bellDing! We’re now in session.

Welcome, all – visitors, fellow Rotarians, and guests alike to this E-Club program!

Remember the Four-Way Test!

At the beginning of each meeting, we remind ourselves of The Four-Way Test.  Therefore, please remember to ask yourself always . . .

Of the things we think, say, or do:

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?
Like most of you, I spent my time much differently than I envisioned over the last sixteen months or so. Watching endless movies and television series, long solitary walks and reflecting upon how quickly life had changed. Even though my business came to a complete standstill and the concerns of how can my company survive were ever present, my internal optimistic side continued to prevail. I worked to keep my mind fresh and strove to use the unwanted "free" time to develop new projects, tackle various tasks and most importantly keep learning. During the shutdown, I spent time revisiting the topic of my own personal hero, George Washington. Washington exemplifies qualities that most would deem worthy of his stature in our history. Though flawed, as seen through the lens of revisionist history, George Washington must still be admired for the man he was and his impact our country. I wanted to share a brief overview from the University of Virginia's Washington Papers collections.
