                The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of
                        worthy enterprise, and, in particular, to encourage and foster:
       1. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
       2. High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the
          dignifying by each Rotarian of his occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
       3. The application of the ideal of service by every Rotarian to his personal, business and community life;
       4. The advancement of international understanding, good will, and peace through a world fellowship of business and
          professional men and women united in the ideal of service.
