President's March Letter
I am writing
this on a fairly grey St David's Day here in my part of Wales
but the snowdrops and daffodils are blooming brightly. This
has been a St David's Day like no other - no concerts, Eisteddfodau
or get-togethers of any sort but my Club met this morning
on Zoom to hear a wonderful storyteller recount one of our
may have lived a long time ago but the message he left us
with is as apt today as it ever was. He told us to do the
little things and despite everything that has happened I know
that Inner Wheel members have been doing just that - quietly
getting on with helping out in their communities and adapting
to life as it is now.
has been a busy month for me, although I have scarcely left
my study. We continue with our weekly Executive meetings along
with all of the other Association committees. I chaired the
online session when we presented the Presentation of Accounts
and Balance Sheet 2019-2020 and the four Proposals and also
the subsequent Q&A Session. I hope you all have a chance
to look at this video and consider the contents carefully.
remember, the voting opens on March 9th and closes on April
privileged to join District 13 for their Rally with members
from all over the world in attendance. I was happy to join
the Inner Wheel Club of Gloucester, District 10 when they
celebrated their 90th Anniversary - some achievement! I was
so impressed that they already had most of their club officers
for next year in place.
I am very
pleased with the enthusiastic response to the idea which emerged
from the District Chairmen's group that we send cards to express
our appreciation to NHS workers to mark International Women's
Day on March 8th. I know the clapping has stopped and some
of those rainbows so lovingly drawn have faded but our gratitude
for all the hard work they do has not diminished.
of rainbows reminds me of a fact not often realised, The Wizard
of Oz opened in cinemas on 25 August 1939 and "Over the
Rainbow" was the most popular piece of music in that
year. It is a reminder that we are in tough times but walking
towards better ones. With so many of us having had our vaccinations
let us hope that that "somewhere" is not too far

Inner Wheel is one of the largest women's
service voluntary organisations in the world and are active
in more than 104 countries.
There are more than 108,000 members in 3,895 Clubs.
International has an Executive Committee of 5 elected members
and 16 elected Board Directors. They look after the organisation.
There is a small office with one full time employee.
Every three years there is an International Triennial Convention
organised by a hosting country committee and the IIW Governing
Body where changes to the constitution are discussed and voted
upon by the membership.
Personal service is a top priority and members find many ways
to carry out projects in their local communities.
They provide help in hospitals, hospices, care homes, schools,
entertain the elderly and lonely and offer help to needy children
and the disabled.
