On March 5, 2020, Dr. Bryan D. Royer was inducted into the Rotary Club of Sylvania along with two other new members. He is excited to continue his long tradition of service to the community while serving in the Rotary Club. Dr. Royer chose the organization due to the strong principles that it upholds.
The Object of Rotary is to “encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise” and to encourage and foster the development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service, “the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society” and the “advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service”. Dr. Royer also likes the idea of the 4- Way Test in that it can be used as a guide for things that Rotarians think say or do.
- Is it true?
- Is it fair-minded?
- Does it build better friendships and goodwill?
- Is it of benefit to everyone concerned?
