Sofia Poyry "My Summer Activities"

Our Rotary International Student from Finland, Sofia, gave a glimpse into her very full summer, which included gathering with the other Rotary Exchange Students in the rain at the Sydney Opera House to see the Australia Day fireworks on the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Lauren's Arrival in Brazil

Just wanting to check in with you and the Rotary Club of Heirisson after my departure on the 19th of Jan.

After a long time of flying, I safely landed in São Paulo airport on the 20th and arrived in my host city mid afternoon on the 21st. 

I am enjoying the significant differences I’m noticing between Australia and Brazil, such as the extensive amount of graffiti art that fills São Paulo city and the seemingly never ending rolling hills we drove through, heading to my host city. 

I’m picking up the language as quickly as I can, but there is still a significant language barrier between me and my non-English speaking host family. 

Her is a photo of my host parents meeting me at São Paulo airport; Marcos and Leila.

Late yesterday (21st) I met up with some exchange students staying in my city in Brazil. Tannis 🇨🇦, Emília 🇪🇨, Alex 🇺🇸 and Rodrigo 🇲🇽. It was lovely meeting them and I am looking forward to getting to know them more.
That’s all from me for now, I’ll keep in touch. 

From Lauren Wolters :)

Rotary Quote

1979-80 James L. Bomar Jr. (general law practice), Rotary Club of Shelbyville, Tennessee, USA.
Rotary vision: To Let Service Light the Way to a better world.
“What is the value of the life of one child saved? No one will ever know, but if the child were our own, the price tag would be marked: Not for sale — this life is invaluable.”
— When Life Is Gone, That’s All There Is, THE ROTARIAN, January 1980

This month's Focused Theme

Rotary Focus for the month of January 2019
Vocational Service Month


Find inspiring examples of ways to take action through vocational service. Consider doing some of the described activities
or introducing similar ones in your club. Alternately, you may want to expand on current efforts.


Rotary emphasizes integrity and high ethical standards. Two standards developed by Rotarians — The Four-Way Test and the Rotarian Code of
Conduct — provide a road map for ethical behavior in the workplace and other areas of life.

The Four-Way Test was conceived in 1932 by businessman Herbert
J. Taylor, a member of the Rotary Club of Chicago, Illinois, USA, who served as Rotary International president in 1954-55. Having taken on the task of saving a company from bankruptcy, Taylor developed
the test as an ethical guide to follow in all business matters. The company’s survival was credited to this simple philosophy. Adopted by Rotary International in 1934, The Four-Way Test remains an essential standard against which Rotarians measure ethical behavior. It has been translated into dozens of languages and promoted by
Rotarians worldwide.

Of the things we think, say or do:

1. Is it the TRUTH?

2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?

3. Will it build GOODWILL and

4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all


The Rotarian Code of Conduct provides a framework for ethical
behavior that all Rotarians can use, together with The Four-Way Test, in their business and professional activities.

As part of Rotary’s guiding principles and the Avenues of Service, Vocational Service calls on Rotarians to empower others by using their unique skills and expertise to address community needs and help others discover new professional opportunities and interests.This handbook can help you gain a better understanding of vocational
service and provide you with ideas to practice it through your service activities, in your personal life, and in your career.


As a Rotarian, I will

1. Act with integrity and high ethical standards in my personal and professional life

2. Deal fairly with others and treat them and their occupations with respect

3. Use my professional skills through Rotary to mentor young people, help those with special
needs, and improve people’s quality of life in my community and in the world

4. Avoid behavior that reflects adversely on Rotary or other
