SERVICE ABOVE SELF,
ONE PROFITS MOST WHO SERVES BEST
AND THE FOUR-WAY TEST.
The two phrases that have served as official mottos of Rotary get
to the heart of what it means to be a Rotarian from different
directions. But service lies at their core. Because service is what
Rotary is all about. Both mottos had their origins at the second
convention of the National Association of Rotary Clubs of America,
in Portland, Oregon, in 1911. In 1989, Service Above Self was
approved as the principal Rotary motto, because it conveys
best the philosophy of unselfish volunteer service.
Against the backdrop of this foundation, perhaps
the most important ethical framework the world
has ever known, the Four Way Test, was born.
Going the Distance for Bike Safety.
The 2015 Bike Rally. Just one of many community projects with Brighton Rotarians driving them.
For the fifth year in a row, Brighton Rotarians, in partnership with the Brighton Police Department, put on a Bike Rally for bike safety. It was a new opportunity for parents and children to bring their bikes (and trikes) to the Twelve Corners Presbyterian Church parking lot to have them inspected for safety. Brake pad alignment. Tire pressure. Chain tension. Especially important for parents, checking to ensure that all children have the right sized helmet. Be sure to check out the many other ways Brighton Rotarians make an impact in the Brighton, and greater Rochester, communities every day.
Restoring Our Heritage
$100,000 Raised To Restore Historic Buckland Farmhouse.
The Buckland Farmstead is a house that best represents the growth of
the town of Brighton from the settlement period to the modern age.
It began as a very small house and grew as the size and the needs of its
families increased. And of course it is important historically because
I of its long association with the Buckland family. n 1997, the Town of Brighton
purchased the house and thirty-two acres of the farm, now known as the
Buckland Farmstead. And Brighton Rotary teamed up with The Town
and The State of New York, raising $100,000 of the $400,000 cost
to rehabilitate the house, enhance its historic features and bring about
an adaptive re-use of the building. The official ribbon-cutting ceremony
for the House took place September 8, 2007.
An Essential Foodlink Link
Our appetite for sorting food donations never goes away.
Foodlink is a regional food hub and food bank serving the 10-county Rochester area
that, in 2014, distributed over 18 million pounds of food! And with a good
percentage of donated food in slightly damaged boxes and containers, it all needs
to be sorted, to keep the good and discard the bad. That process is done by
volunteers like Brighton Rotarians, who make Foodlink a twice-a-year project
that’s fun for everyone. And helps satiate an entire community.
