CHESTERVILLE — Just in time for warmer weather, the Chesterville & District Rotary Club recently teamed up with Winchester BMR to help the seniors of Nationview Apartments acquire a porch swing set — now installed at the front of the 49 Water St. building.

Residents had asked the Club for help with the improvement. The Rotarians agreed and found a nice set — complete with bench seating, centre table and overhead canopy — at Winchester BMR. Store co-owner Ken Boje knocked $200 off the $700 price tag and took care of delivery and installation.

Not a Masonic or fraternal organization, the Rotary Club movement was started in 1905 by Chicago lawyer Paul Harris as a way for professional and business people to pursue community service. Rotary’s central tenet is the “four-way test”:

  • 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 Chesterville Club was founded in 1938.
