LETTERS: The four way test

Except for a handful of true Rotarian, I have not heard from the over 100 Rotarians in our area on the Skaha Lake development.

As a long time member and former president of the Penticton Skaha Rotary Club, I feel obliged to make the following remarks.

The three Penticton Rotary Clubs have been instrumental in creating, expending and maintaining most of the parks in Penticton and are responsible for the creation of Munson Mountain Park, Rotary Park and the beautiful Skaha Beach Park including the Rotary Centennial Pavilion.

Together the clubs have spent hundred of thousands of dollars on these projects. I also know that dozens of Penticton Chamber of Commerce members also belong or have belonged to Rotary. All members of Rotary International are take an oath which we call “The four way test.”

1. Is it the truth.

2. Is it fair to all concerned.

3. Will is bring good will and better understanding.

4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned.

Except for a handful of true Rotarian, I have not heard from the over 100 Rotarians in our area. I have not heard from the dozens of chamber of commerce members that are Rotarians.

Are you all in favour of the destruction of our parks that we all worked so hard for, for over half a century?

Are you true Rotarians?

What about our District Governors’ past and present, are you all in favour of this senseless destruction?

Since 1973 I tried to live my life by the four way test and am proud of it. I wonder if you can say the same.
