 About Medina Sunrise

Medina Sunrise is a local Rotary Club of Rotary International.  Rotary International was founded by Paul Harris in 1905 in Chicago.  Rotary International in divided into districts.  Medina Sunrise is part of District 6630

There was an evening Rotary Club in Medina.  In the early 1990s there was discussion about forming a breakfast group.  The evening club voted in 1994 (January 6) to share the territory and sponsor a new club.  

On June 29, 1994 there was an organization meeting for the new club.  After all the paper work was filed, the new club received its charter on July 11, 1994.    On July 19, 1994, the members of both Rotary Clubs, District 6630, and others gathered at Rustic Hills to celebrate the new club.

The foundation of Rotary is found in both its objectives and Four-Way Test.
  
The Objectives of Rotary are:

  • The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service
  • High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society
  • The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life
  • The advancment of international understanding, godwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

 

  • The Four-Way Test is:

    Of the things we think, say, and do
  • First, is it the Truth?
  • Second, is it Fair to all concerned?
  • Third, will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
    and
  • Fourth, will it be beneficial to all concerned?
