Posted by | Jan 19, 2021 |

Inner Wheel Day Celebration is one of the major events of Inner Wheel Philippines. Because of the current limitations set forth by the government, the organizing committee prepared a simple but memorable first virtual celebration.

International Inner Wheel President Dr. Bina Vyas gave her Inner Wheel message to almost 300 members who attended the first virtual celebration. In her speech, she emphasized that only with sensitivity, empathy, and compassion that we can develop the vision and mission for our organization. She further reiterates that it is time to welcome change in Inner Wheel, to go through the various cycles of change depending on the current situation we are in. This will enable us to make our organization grow and become a better organization.

Highlight of the event is the Honoring of Past National President led by National President Ma. Pamela de Guzman. In her message, she described the pillars as the epitome of beauty and brains who brought honor not only in the country but also in International Inner Wheel. They inspire members to develop and contribute good work for the benefit of the organization. The accomplishments of the forty-four honorees were compiled in an e-book which was shown during the event. The honoring was concluded with a serenade of songs, reminiscing their bonding and fellowship moments together. Council of Past National President- President Dr. Raquel Sta. Ines gave a response on behalf of all the honorees.

Traditionally, the Tunay na Atin (Buy Philippine made-products), a one-day bazaar is held simultaneously with the event. It features local products from the different Districts. This year, an online bazaar was launched and this will run for a month, starting January 10.

The event was spearheaded by National Representative Fe Victoria de Guia and Deputy National Representative Emily Duterte.
