The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and,

The Bulletin of the Rotary Club of Patong Beach Phuket - Thailand

in particular to encourage: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service High ethical standards in business and professionals; the recognition of 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 Four Way Test Is it the TRUTH? Is it FAIR to all concerned? Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIP? Will it be BENIFICIAL to all concerned?

WHO SAID THAT ? I had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description In the catalog: 'No good in a bed, but fine against a wall.' Eleanor Roosevelt Last week, I stated this woman was the Ugliest woman I had ever seen. I have since been visited by her sister, And now wish to withdraw that statement. Mark Twain

This week’s photo— by Denis

I don't feel old. I don't feel anything until noon. Then it's time for my nap. Bob Hope We could certainly slow the ageing process down If it had to work its way through Congress. Will Rogers Don't worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older, it will avoid you. Winston Churchill Maybe it's true that life begins at fifty ... But everything else starts to wear out, fall out, Or spread out. Phyllis Diller By the time a man is wise enough to watch his step, he's too old to go anywhere. Billy Crystal And the cardiologist's diet: If it tastes good, spit it out. Remember to count your blessings!! Smile and have a great day!!! “What does it mean when you find a tiger with a wet nose? It means you are too close to the tiger” David Gay
