She references Rotary's Four-Way Test (of the things we think, say, and do) when considering decisions for the workplace and the community.

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?
Carol and her husband, Alan, met in high school 45 years ago and have been married for 28 years.

They enjoy golfing and traveling when their schedules allow.
