The Four-Way Test

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?
President's Message
Kenneth Courter


I would like to sincerely thank those that volunteered to collect school supplies at area Giants this past weekend.  Your efforts will ensure that every child in Loudoun County will begin their school year with the necessary school supplies.  I would like to ask  Club members for a “repeat performance” and once again volunteer their time at area Giants to ensure we collect enough supplies to fill 1,200 backpacks!  That’s right – 1,200 backpacks thanks to Costco’s generosity.  We also received a grant from Lance Nobles with FVC Bank to purchase additional school supplies. 

Can you spend an hour or two handing out flyers this week at area Giants?  This is a fun experience where the whole family can participate.  Giant shoppers are eager to help as they want to give back. We are blessed to have such great neighbors.

And finally, tell your family and friends about our work.  Take pictures – like and share Facebook postings from your fellow Rotarians so we can show the community what our club is all about. 

Many thanks, 

YIS,  Ken Courter, Keller Williams Realty
