Motorists on the highly trafficked street may read the Rotary Four Way test: ”Is it the TRUTH?” “Is it FAIR to all Concerned?” “Will it Build GOOD WILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?” “Will it be BENEFICIAL to All Concerned?” “Rotary District 7120.” Congratulations to Waterloo Rotarians for helping tell the public what Rotary stands for.
Waterloo Rotary meets on Monday at 6:30 at the Holiday Inn, Seneca Falls Rotary meets at noon on Tuesday at the Holiday Inn. New members are always welcome at Rotary.
Burma Shave was a shaving cream manufacturer which erected hundreds of signs along roadways all over the country with pithy short rhymes. The rhymes were always displayed on four separate signs spaced far enough apart so travelers could read them while they were driving along. The signs often contained safety messages and always ended with the Burma Shave logo on a fifth sign.
Past school houses….Take it slow….Let the little….Shavers grow….
Today one of the last Burma Shave signs has been preserved in the Smithsonian museum in Washington, D.C. It reads:
Shaving brushes….You’ll soon see’em….On the Shelf….In some museum.
Here is a site with s fair number of Burma Shave’s classic Rhymes
