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 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?

Light Moments (from

A customer walked into a store looking for Christmas lights. The clerk showed her the top brand, but—wanting to make sure each bulb worked—she asked him to take them out of the box and plug them in. He did, and each one lit up. 
"Great," she said. 
He carefully placed the string of lights back in the box. But as he handed them to her, she looked alarmed. 
"I don’t want this box," she said abruptly. "It’s been opened."
A woman goes to the post office and asks for 50 Hanukkah stamps. 
"What denomination?" asks the clerk. 
The woman says, "Six Orthodox, 12 Conservative, and 32 Reform."

A Reflective Moment

"The holiday season is a perfect time to reflect on our blessings and week out ways to make life better for those around us."
  ~~ Terri Marshall


Our E-Club Meeting

NOTE: No one exemplifies the sentiment of our reflective moment above more than Rotarian Dr. V. K. Raju, who created the Eye Foundation of America to eliminate preventable blindness in children around the world. Today, countless professionals and Rotarians are actively involved in this important effort, which today serves adults as well.  E-Club member Leela Raju accompanied her father on a recent trip to Ghana and also participated in an international seminar, where Morgantown Rotary President Dr. Indira Majumder also participated. Her summary of those humanitarian travels appears in the PowerPoint presentation below. Enjoy!

Helping to Prevent Blindness in Ghana and around the World

Thank you Drs. Raju for your dedication to others!
