Inner Wheel Day
District 18 celebrate Inner Wheel Day.
District 18 MOC Sandra welcomed over 60 members to celebrate International Inner Wheel Day 2021. After reading the Inner Wheel Prayer, greetings were received from Association President Enid, who was present at the meeting, and International President Dr Bina via a letter read by District Secretary Angela.
MOC Sandra then invited each club to give an update on their activities. The varied responses proved that, whilst still adhering to government restrictions during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Inner Wheel Members are still finding ingenious ways to provide much needed support within their local communities and further afield. Examples of service included sewing face masks and scrubs; distributing food parcels collected as a ‘Reverse Advent’ challenge; donating toiletries to Refuge Centres and hospitals; delivering hot meals to those who are isolated; and raising money for charity whilst having fun via Zoom raffles and competitions.
Vice President Carol then introduced Alyson, the speaker for the evening, who delighted everyone present with her tales of the origins of Penhaligon’s and the exotic scents they sell.
The meeting concluded with a rendition of the Inner Wheel Song.
