We ask ourselves four questions when making decisions:

  1. Is it the Truth?
  2. Is it Fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build Goodwill and better Friendship?
  4. Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?

These four questions have been the basis of so many causes that have greatly benefited others when Rotarians have been involved. The eradication of polio worldwide, to free vision and dental care in our community to those in need, are examples of Rotarian involvement. No matter how big the cause or how small, the “Four Way Test” directs our efforts.

Rocky Point Rotary has submitted a district matching grant to purchase a repeater radio for our local Red Cross. If funded the Red Cross will have the ability to communicate with other vehicles in any part of their services area. All the projects we tackle need funding at many different levels and, naturally, the more dollars we can generate the more services we can provide.

Our Annual “Fish Bowl” is one of our biggest fundraisers. This is where many local restaurants in Rocky Point set up booths at the Plaza del Camaron, otherwise known as the Shrimp Shine Park and home to the Mermaid’s Market. The local restaurants sell tickets to sample the many Seafood cuisines we are so lucky to enjoy here. The event will be held from 10AM to 4PM and will feature local restaurants, art, music and fun! See the ad in this edition of the Rocky Point Times.

In the meantime, our Rotary Club will be selling squares for the Superbowl. We will have $20 squares and $100 squares. You can find us at the Mermaid’s Market on February 5th, please come and buy a square to support our efforts to better serve the needs of our community!

Our Rotary Club will be hosting 40 Rotarians from Utah starting on February 5th through the 11th. This sister club will be working with our Rotary Club on several local projects in Peñasco. 

If you have been reading the Rotary updates each month, I mentioned that thanks goes to Bill Gruwell / owner of Courtesy Chevrolet in Phoenix and his generous donation of a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox; valued at almost $12,000 dollars; we have another way to fundraise! The car crossed the border in December and now we are deciding how best to “give it away”. We’ll keep you updated.
