GREENCASTLE -- Rotary club members are business and professional leaders who volunteer in their communities and promote world peace and understanding. Rotary encourages high ethical standards and carries out humanitarian projects to address issues such as poverty, health, hunger, education and the environment.

The Rotary Club of Greencastle recently welcomed three new members.

Gary Lemon is the James W. Emison Director of the Robert C. McDermond Center for Management and Entrepreneurship at DePauw University. Dr. Lemon is married to wife Susan, who is a social worker, and the couple has two sons, Mark and Michael.

Dr. Lemon joined Rotary to become more involved in the community, and his sponsor was M. Elaine Peck.

Dennis Knuth is the owner of Greencastle Hometown Dental. He and his wife, Emily Jones Knuth have a daughter, Eleanor, and a baby on the way. Dr. Knuth was sponsored by Dr. Thomas Graffis.

"I want to follow in the footsteps of the founder of my dental office, and give back to my community through service," said Knuth. "I strive to improve myself and those around me."

Patrick Kelley is the Director of Visiting Angels, a corporation he founded with his daughter. The corporation provides non-medical supportive services in the home to elderly and disabled persons.

Mr. Kelley joined Rotary to serve the community, and he was sponsored by Murray Pride.

From the earliest days of the organization, Rotarians have been concerned with promoting high ethical standards in their professional lives. One of the world's most highly printed and quoted statements of business ethics is the Four-Way Test. Adopted by Rotary in 1943, the Four-Way Test asks the following four questions: "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?"
