IT’S ABOUT TIME
Nikki Workman, a Leadership Marion graduate, will introduce today’s program “It’s about time for Marion to stop living in the past”; and you’ll meet some of our new Marion leaders and learn why “It’s About Time!” It’s about time for the community to embrace its future and new leaders. That is the theme of this week’s Marion Rotary presentation as Pastor Tom Toney, the facilitator for the “Leadership Marion! Program”, introduces a new video about Marion and its future. Tom will be joined by recent “Leadership Marion!” graduates: Kelly Garrett of the United Way, Heidi Jones of Marion Matters, and Doris Dunn of the Marion Area Chamber of Commerce.
The video you’ll see today developed as the class service project of the 2013-14 Marion Leadership class. If you come to the meeting, you will be offered a free copy of the video for use in your organization or mounting on your company’s website.
“Leadership Marion!” has been a leadership development program of the Marion Area Chamber of Commerce since 1991. “Each year Leadership Marion!” invites high-potential candidates from throughout Marion County to join in a journey to understand Marion’s history, its current challenges and its future,” said Pam Hall, president, Marion Area Chamber of Commerce. Hall said the class, which meets one day a month from September through May, explores essential building blocks of the Marion community, from education, business and government to health care and social services.
"Service Above Self”
REMEMBER 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
- Is it the TRUTH?
- Is it FAIR to all concerned?
- Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
- Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
