Lidköping Inner Wheel Club 60 years

Lidköping Inner Wheel Club celebrated its 60th anniversary on November 23 at Restaurant Galejan.

We started with by mingling with each other and a welcome drink and were able to converse with each other before sitting down at different tables, which were beautifully set. The atmosphere was warm and inviting.

About 40 (45) invited guests and club members were welcomed by our club president Lena Rademo. Among invited guests were Council President Agneta Svensson Filipstad IWC, Deputy Council President Ewa Jägevall S: ta Elin IWC, District President Birgitta Sallmén Gislaved IWC, Margareta Momqvist Tecklenburger IWC, Representatives from Lidköping Rotary, Two Clubs, Rotary President Louise Bratt Carle Lidköping Rotary Club and Past Rotary President Ann-Christin Hagaeus Vänern Rotary Club. We also welcomed the presidents and members of the following clubs Eksjö IWC, Skara IWC, Skövde IWC, Skövde St. Elin IWC, who accepted our invitation.

"A historical look back over the past 10 years" was held in verse by Sonja Nylén, one of our club's oldest members.

Many congratulations were expressed both in speech and in writing. Among other things, a greeting from the Danish friendship club Nörresundby IWC. The amount of gifts for Inner Wheel's project was impressive and gratefully received.

A compilation about Lidköping Inner Wheel Club 2009-2919. A 10-year period, was presented. 

A special welcome was given to our well-known voice from Sweden's Radio, Maria Persson Löfgren, who would later during the evening give a lecture on her work as a correspondent in Russia. Maria is connected to Lidköping. Her mother Barbro Persson was a faithful Inner Wheel member of our club. In 1977-1978 she was also club president.

Without talented staff, this celebration would not have been possible, said our club president Lena Raemo, and expressed gratitude and handed over the friendship's roses for the work done, good cooperation and community in the best IW spirit. A thank you to our club president was expressed with a friendly appreciation, hugs and applause.

The Jubilee celebration ended with singing the Inner Wheel song together.

We, the club members, all agreed that we had a wonderfully nice party together.
