Athens Community Council on Aging  is excited to announce KaDee Holt, ACCA’s Chief Marketing Officer, was inducted into the Athens Rotary Club on Wednesday, January 14, 2015.  Phil Bettendor from Athens First Bank and Trust sponsored KaDee for membership.  Rotarians practice the Four-Way Test.  It 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: Is it the TRUTH? Is it FAIR to all concerned? Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?”

Athens Rotary Club was chartered on March 12, 1920 and has established itself both in the local community and in the Rotary community, as evidenced by its continuing tradition of service above self.
