75th Installation Ceremony - IWC Singapore

Posted by International Inner Wheel | Jul 31, 2021 |


The Inner Wheel Club of Singapore has just celebrated the start of its 75th Anniversary. The Club’s actual birthday is 17th November. The Club was chartered in 1946 and has grown in strength and service over the years. Today there are four Inner Wheel Clubs in Singapore.

The Installation event was a great celebration over the zoom platform. We had the honour to have with us IIW President Ebe Martines, National Representative Ambika Panicker and District 331 Chairman Datin Gillian Lee and her District Officers.

IIW President Ebe mentioned in her Congratulatory speech that "Seventy-five years ago your Club's Charter Members came together to form the Inner Wheel Club of Singapore where women of talent, ability and compassion united in Service and Friendship". It was a very motivating statement for the members

District 331 comprises clubs in Singapore as well as East Malaysia. All were well represented by their Presidents and members. This demonstrated the unity of purpose felt by the members and Executive teams of the 4 Singapore Clubs together with the other Clubs in District 331

The Installation featured all the traditional highlights – the lighting of the candle of friendship, the three toasts and the speeches which were inspiring.

President Sita presented the past year’s work by PowerPoint and gave her year’s priorities based on those given by IIW

A video clip of the induction of a new member showed President Sita reading her citation, presenting the IW Badge and a rose stalk.

The Installation event was held together by the gracious MC PP Roshan Mistri, a veteran member of Inner Wheel and well versed in its protocol

The meeting ended on a high note with all those present invited to participate in a lively entertainment of ZUMBA. Members danced dynamically to the rhythm of various popular Indian songs. It was full of laughter and fun!

There were a total of 67 members and guests at the Installation.
