Innisfil Rotary Call for Unsung Heroes!

2014 UNSUNG HERO AWARD APPLICATION

The Rotary Club of Innisfil is planning to
recognize and celebrate unsung heroes in our community.Abraham Lincoln offered a good description of
an unsung hero when he suggested, “Don’t worry when you are not recognized, but
strive to be worthy of recognition.” Lincoln’s comment implies a certain type
of character and a way of living life that fits well with Rotary values. In
1932, Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor developed one of the hallmarks of Rotary, our
4-Way Test, which acts as a checklist for ethical behaviour. The Test,
comprised of four brief questions, is an excellent way to build respect and
understanding among people.

We would like to honour two people, a youth and
an adult, who reflect the 4-way principles through their community-minded
actions.If you know someone who is
committed to improving our community, and who demonstrates they have the 4-way
test values in mind as they make a contribution to Innisfil, we invite you to
complete a nomination form so we can consider that person as a recipient of one
of our unsung hero awards.
