Rotary’s Mission

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’s main objective is service – in the community, in the workplace, and around the globe. The 1.2 million Rotarians who make up more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in nearly every country in the world share a dedication to the ideal of Service Above Self.

Rotary clubs are open to people of all cultures and ethnicities and are not affiliated with any political or religious organizations.

The Rotary Four-Way Test

The test, which has been translated into more than 100 languages, asks the following four simple questions:

Of the things we think, say or do...

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

Congratulations to these men for their financial commitment to The Rotary Foundation.


Oct. 7, 2015 - The new Greenway restroom, a partnership between Bradley Sunrise and Cleveland noon Rotary clubs, is nearing completion! All that remains on the construction is a few last-minute details. Two connecting sidewalks to the greenway are awaiting cooperative weather, so until then it must remain locked to the public. If you have not had a chance to take a look, feel free to drive by. The roof was chosen to represent Rotary blue! Both clubs are looking forward to a day in the near future when they can gather for a formal ribbon-cutting!


Members from the Cleveland Rotary Club and Bradley Sunrise Rotary joined together for a historic ground- breaking on the Greenway last week. The clubs are financing the construction of a new public restroom, the first time the two clubs have worked on a major service project together.


District Governor Jerry Wear presented an interesting and informative message to Bradley Sunrise Rotary's membership during the August 7, 2014 meeting. Following this meeting he met with the clubs leadership team to discuss in more detail the club's plans and goals for the upcoming year and beyond.


November 6th meeting speaker, Brenda Thornburgh poses with her Rotary teddy bear after giving the club a progress report about RI’s End Polio Now campaign. She also gave the membership insight into her participation on a National Immunization Day in India in 2012.

Coach Jones meets local Vol fans by RICHARD ROBERTS Banner Sports Editor

UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE head football coach Butch Jones spoke to a capacity crowd of Vols fans at the Bradley Central High School Center for the Performing Arts Friday evening. Tennessee football fans braved the rainy weather in droves Friday to listen to first-year head coach Butch Jones talk about the team of Volunteers he and his staff are working to build in Knoxville.

As he has since he took the controls of the UT football program, Jones connected with the fans and again exuded total confidence in the team, his staff and the plan to take Tennessee back to prominence.
