What Do The Four H's Represent?
The second H represents the Heart. Our hearts are used to be loyal and dedicated.
The third H represents the Hands. We use our hands to help others and do fun things.
The fourth H represents the Health. Without health, it is very hard to do anything else.
My heart to greater loyalty,
My hands to larger service,
And my health to better living
For my Club, my Community, my Country and my World.
