About West Milford Rotary
On July 7, 1959 West Milford Rotary received its charter from Rotary International. We have donated several hundred thousand dollars over the nearly sixty years including the Walter Head Foundation, local community organizations including the First Aid Squad, Chilton Hospital, West Milford Library and West Milford School district. In addition to these donations, we have many other accomplishments to be proud of, notable among which are: The gift of the Mural of the Township Seal on the wall in the Town Hall meeting room, The Gazebo at Bubbling Springs Park, a playing field at Camp Rainbow in Newfoundland, the Community Message Board on Union Valley Rd., sponsoring RYLA students, sponsoring and organizing the Jefferson Rotary Club in 1965, funding the backdrop curtain for the high school stage, organizing Career Day at the high school, mentoring the WMHS Interact Club to acquaint young people with community service, and most importantly, the Gift of Life program where we bring children to the U.S. for life saving heart surgery.
"We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give." Winston Churchill
The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.
Rotary 4 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?
