Rotary Club of Sherwood Park: Guiding Principles
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?
 
The Rotary Club of Sherwood Park is organized into five divisions to carry out the Five Avenues of Service which form the foundation of Rotary's work.  Our club, vocational, community, international, and youth service committees encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise.  All members ensure that the focus of their work is Service Above Self.
