District Rally November 2022

All members were warmly welcomed on arrival by the ladies of Truro IW who were our hosts for the day.  Tea, coffee and homemade biscuits were in plentiful supply and there was plenty of friendly catching up in the reception area. The staff were very helpful when it came to setting up the ‘photography corner’ and also took a photo for their Facebook page, all publicity warmly welcomed!!

Beatrice Dyer excelled in her role as MC, and after  Vanessa Hughes led us in the Inner Wheel prayer and the Grace we all settled down to a delicious lunch which everyone enjoyed.

Joint DC and Member of Council Fran raised our first loyal toast to The King,  followed by Marjorie gathering up some of the members of the waiting staff to receive a vote of thanks.

After a 15 minute break for tea, coffee and comfort breaks Joint DC Val gave the official welcome to association President Karen Davies  who then introduced herself to us.

Karen told us to be proud of and actively promote Inner Wheel, we have been the world’s best kept secret long enough. We must adapt to the world we find ourselves in while maintaining the important links to our past. Every member is important and Service, along with Friendship, is the essence of Inner Wheel.

Karen explained that her late husband worked for the Wales Air Ambulance, which is why the Air Ambulances are her chosen charity, we are very welcome to support our own organisations in Devon & Cornwall but if we also wanted to sponsor her in her plan to dance for 2 hours every day of her Presidency she would be delighted.

Karen is determined that the Blackpool conference will go ahead, registration is open now and also to register an interest in the Convention in Manchester in 2024.

Karen finished by telling us how the tradition of presenting a red rose for friendship started with a Danish club in the 1960s and presented our 2 District Chairmen Fran and Val with a rose each.

Fran gave the vote of thanks, and Karen was presented with a Cornwall Air Ambulance bag of treats from Devon and Cornwall.

The meeting closed in the usual solemn manor that we have come to expect from Val with a rendition of a poem about middle aged ladies!!
