On March 17th, 2017, within the historical frame of the Hotel Excelsior in Palermo, the Charter Ceremony for Palermo Federico II new Club took place with large scale participation of National Inner Wheel and Rotary authorities.
The foundation of the new Club denotes its deep belief in the cardinal values of the Inner Wheel. To promote true friendship, to encourage the ideal of personal service, and to foster international understanding. The Club name, Federico II, has been chosen because of the versatile and fascinating personality of Federico the II, who drew attention on our beloved Sicily.
Friendship relations have been established with many District 211 Clubs and important cooperation projects to maintain with Clubs from other Inner Wheel Districts are foreseen.
The Statutory objective of the service is dedicated to fundraising to allocate mostly to children in need.
The Club is establishing itself within Palermo community thanks to the qualified activity carried out by its President, surrounded by the Club members all very deeply united.
We officially enter International Inner Wheel large family. Our priority will be to give birth to a social project inspired to the finalities of our association. The President Francesca Schifani Oliveri is confident of everyone support and hopes to be able to reach the objectives that our Club requires.
The ceremony ended with a cocktail reception and a final celebratory cake with the IIW emblem printed on it.
