Created in 1932, the Four Way test is one of the world’s most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics.
 
What follows is the story written by Herbert J. Taylor then president of a failing business called the Club Aluminum Company. This simple philosophy was adopted by Rotary in 1943, The Four-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways. Given that members of the Wichita Falls Southwest Rotary Club, the Wichita Falls North Rotary Club and all our High School contestants are preparing for our annual 4Way Test Speech Contest on April 4th at Edgemere Church of Christ, a story on how the Rotary 4 Way Test was developed would be appreciated by our readers. It should be noted that it's author, Herbert J. Taylor served as Rotary International's president during the 1954-55 fiscal year. Thanks to our fellow Rotarians in District 5630 (Nebraska) for sharing this story on their website.
Clay Sports Shooters of all ages are welcome
In its 15th year, the Southwest Rotary Club Sporting Clay Shoot raises money for community initiatives around education, families and the betterment of our communities.  We believe education assures an individual and their family quality of life and opportunities to live to one's true potential.  SW Rotarians believe Single parent families with children require basic needs. Teaming with other action-oriented community servants, SW Rotarians focus resources of time, talent, treasure and testimony in service to our communities while improving opportunities for health, safety and the well-being of all. 
 
The 15 th annual SW Rotary Club's Clay Shoot is to take place Saturday April 27 th
 
 
We anticipate 100 shooters. Northwest Texas Field and Stream offers an outstanding shooting experience.

Our Clay Shoot raises money for community initiatives around education, families and betterment of our communities. 
 
Rotary’s “Service Above Self” motto is the common thread as Southwest Rotarians improve the opportunities, health, safety and well-being of those around all of us.
So far this year our club has award grants to eleven Wichita Falls community service organizations.
 
For the Past several weeks Wichita Falls Southwest Rotary Club has been inviting some very special guests to our meeting. These guests represent community organizations throughout the Wichita Falls area that serve our community in many different ways. Our club members are proud to support these organizations through grants we are able to award as a result of our members fund raising efforts such as our Flag Program and the Clay Shoot.
