He said that he agrees with  Ranger management’s recent decisions and the best is still yet to come.

Approximately 10 years ago when Ray Clark was president  of the Bonham Rotary Club, he began what the local Rotary Club refers to as one  of their most exciting and beneficial projects. Every year the local Rotarians  buy and distribute dictionaries to every third grade student in Fannin County.  They also put inside the cover the Rotary Four Way Test: Of the things that we  think, say and do: (1) Is it the TRUTH? (2) Is it FAIR to All Concerned? (3)  Will it Build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? and (4) Will it be BENEFICIAL to  All Concerned? All the schools in Fannin County permit the Rotarians to go into  each class and tell about the dictionaries and meet with the students.

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: FIRST. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity  for service. SECOND. High ethical standards in business and professions, the  recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of  each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society. THIRD. The  application of the ideal of service in each Rotarians’ personal, business, and  community life; FOURTH. The advancement of international understanding,  goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional  persons united in the ideal of  service.
