GUIDING PRINCIPLES

These principles have been developed over the years to provide Rotarians with a strong, common purpose and direction. They serve as a foundation for our relationships with each other and the action we take in the world.

OBJECT OF ROTARY

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:
  • FIRST: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
  • SECOND: High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
  • THIRD: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;
  • FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

THE FOUR-WAY TEST

The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:
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 BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

AVENUES OF SERVICE

We channel our commitment to service at home and abroad through five Avenues of Service, which are the foundation of club activity.
  • Club Service focuses on making clubs strong. A thriving club is anchored by strong relationships and an active membership development plan.
  • Vocational Service calls on every Rotarian to work with integrity and contribute their expertise to the problems and needs of society. Learn more in An Introduction to Vocational Service and the Code of Conduct.
  • Community Service encourages every Rotarian to find ways to improve the quality of life for people in their communities and to serve the public interest. Learn more in Communities in Action: A Guide to Effective Projectsand this Community Service presentation (PPT).
  • International Service exemplifies our global reach in promoting peace and understanding. We support this service avenue by sponsoring or volunteering on international projects, seeking partners abroad, and more.
  • Youth Service recognizes the importance of empowering youth and young professionals through leadership development programs such as RotaractInteractRotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Rotary Youth Exchange.

Rotary Discrict 6600

Rotary District 6600 includes 64 clubs and over 3,500 members in Northern Ohio​.

Rotary District 6600, consisting of 64 Rotary clubs and over 3,500 members. Our district is situated in the north central and western sector of Ohio, encompassing over 12,000 square miles. Clubs range in size from 430 members in The Rotary Club of Toledo (12th largest in the world) to 11 members in our Cardington Club, our smallest club. There is great diversity in the clubs across our district.

ABOUT OUR REGION

Much of the northern boundary of our district borders Lake Erie, the smallest of the Five Great Lakes. The largest city in our district, Toledo, with a population of 287,000 people, is home to a number of large corporations such as Owens Corning, Owens Illinois, First Solar and more. Only 50 miles from Detroit, Michigan, our community is closely tied to the automotive industry (home of the Jeep) and is a heavy industrial and manufacturing area. Once known as the glass capital of the world, Toledo is still entrenched heavily in the glass industry and in conjunction with the University of Toledo, is becoming hub for the development of solar and wind energy. Local treasures include the Toledo Museum of ArtToledo ZooToledo Metroparks and the Toledo Symphony. While Toledo is the largest city in our district, our clubs are also located in moderate sized cities such Elyria, Findlay, Lima, Mansfield, Marion, and Sandusky. District 6600 is home to vast areas of farmland, supplying America with wheat, corn, and soybeans as well as dairy and poultry products. Over half of our Rotary clubs are situated in small towns and many are vital to the very town’s existence.

RECREATION

Recreational opportunities abound with parklands, wildlife preserves, bicycle trails and more. Lake Erie is known as the walleye capital of the world and this highly prized game fish is a delicacy whether fried or grilled. The recreational, fishing, and hunting industry provides over $8 billion worth of revenue to the state. The shores of Lake Erie play host every spring to one of the largest migratory bird pathways in the United States.

EDUCATION

The district boasts more than 20 universities and colleges of higher learning including the University of Toledo, Bowling Green State University, Oberlin College, University of Findlay, Tiffin University, Heidelberg University, Ohio Northern University, Lourdes University, Defiance College, Ashland University, and Bluffton University.
