About the Club


The Grand Monadnock Rotary Club (Club #6464) is dedicated to community service, with a special focus on youth development and health advocacy for people of all ages, locally and internationally. We serve "The Monadnock Region of New Hampshire."  We are a new club chartered on July 1, 2020 upon the merger of the Peterborough and Monadnock Rotary Clubs, with a long history dating back to 1925 when the Peterborough Club was started. We celebrate our 100th birthday in 2025.

The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.

Guiding Principles

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 Rotarian's 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.

The Four-Way Test 

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
The Four-Way Test has been called the shortest effective code of standards of correct practice so far devised. It is now being used by numerous trade associations, service clubs, corporations, professional institutions, and by thousands of individuals as a simple measuring stick to assist in determining what is "right" in human relations. That which deserves to live invariably lives on and its usefulness spreads. If the Four-Way Test helps you, why not recommend it to your friends and associates?
