The Four Way Test
The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships.  The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings.
Of the things we think, say or do
  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Is it BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
For our Club:  IS IT FUN??
These simple principles serve as the foundation for our relationships with each other and the actions we take in our communities and the world.

Four Decades of Service and Fellowship    
  • The Rotary Club of The Woodlands came into being in 1975 along with The Woodlands itself. As the foundations of the first homes were being poured, the first businessmen who would be living and working in the community began building the foundations of Rotary. The spirit of service and fellowship that are the hallmarks of the town were embodied in that fledgling club when it was chartered on June 19, 1975.
  • Almost fifty years later, the club has grown to over 190 men and women. Our commitment to service remains strong as we support our community’s youth, those in our community who are less fortunate, and each other. Each year we give more than $32,000 in scholarships to area students through Student of the Year Senior Scholarships and Lone Star College-Montgomery students. We also support Interact clubs at The Woodlands, College Park, Oak Ridge and Grand Oaks High Schools as well as The Woodlands Christian Academy and The John Cooper School.
  • We ring bells for the Salvation Army at Christmas, we collect food and funds for the Montgomery County Food Bank and Meals on Wheels, we work to improve a home for local seniors, we honor our veterans, we conduct literacy campaigns, we give blood, and we have a great time in service to our Community.
