The theme for the day was ‘membership,’ with the morning session facilitated by Sharyn Cain. Sharyn empowered those gathered to firstly do a SWOT analysis of Inner Wheel and then invited the groups to ‘sell’ Inner Wheel to three guests who had no knowldege of Inner Wheel. The feedback given by the three ladies was enlightening! Another highlight of the day was Carol Haskett (IWNZ Vice President) inducting a new member into the Inner Whell Club of Waimate. 014, 31 Mar 2019 00:00:00 +1300 https://www.innerwheel.org.nz/blog/825801 Inner Wheel Club of Plimmerton Raise Funds for a Swing for the Disabled https://www.innerwheel.org.nz/blog/825216 Two members of the Inner wheel Club of Plimmerton attended the opening of the Bedford Park Reserve on the 14 March 2019.

An amazing collection of 34 sets of beanies and fingerless gloves and 3 sets of slippers for the school children, and 3 bassinet blankets, 5 hats, 8 jackets and booties, and three bright coloured sets of a jacket, beanie, booties, and mittens for babies. Huge effort and to think it has been done in this hot summer we have been enjoying. Lucky children in our area! Our President, Judy Dearsley, also asked for donations of toiletries for the medical ward of Hutt Hospital. The shampoo, conditioner, soap, shower gel, tissues, combs, razors, shave foam, tooth-brushes, toothpaste etc are made into care packs for people who arrive in hospital unexpectedly. We will repeat this collection every second month as the number of people being admitted to hospital does not seem to be on the decline. This not only helps the patients, also the nurses who like to see the patients appreciating these donated goods. 008, 22 Feb 2019 00:00:00 +1300 https://www.innerwheel.org.nz/blog/817690 Inner Wheel Club of Opotiki present linen to WISH (Whakaktohea Iwi Social and Health Services) https://www.innerwheel.org.nz/blog/817209 President Carole and members Club members of the IW Club of Opotiki presented three large suitcases and three large carry bags of linen (donated by members the club) to WISH Representative Krystal .

The queuing started for the delicious meal set out -- Ham, turkey, bread sauce, new spuds--- the works. accompanied by a great variety of tasty salads. The serious part of the evening commenced after grace was said and great inroads were made! President Carole read out IWNZ President Darlene's Christmas message. Between courses Ruth was our Speaker and gave us lots to think about with just the simple word " CHRISTMAS" C=Cherish; H=Help; R=Respect; I=Inspire; S=Search; T=Think; M=Make time; A=Amuse(Fun); and S=Sing. she gave great examples. There were 7 birthdays for October, November and this month. Carole acknowledged them by name and a gift and the time honoured birthday song was sung. Lana, Sue and Bronwen won the lovely Christmas raffles. Sue had organised a Nativity video and she preceded it with the warning " Be careful when you are encouraged to stand up and be heard" there was a school nativity play and the earnestness of one of the singers had to be heard to be believed! Even the tiny tot by the baby in the manger kept turning round in awe! Sue then read her Parting Thought for December. " Let us keep Christmas beautiful without a thought of greed, that it might live forevermore to fill our every need, that it shall not be just a day, but last a lifetime through, the miracle of Christmas time that brings God close to you." Sue was thanked by Carole and the Inner Wheel candle was then extinguished and the official part of the evening ended. Members lingered to share what the next few weeks would bring and to wish one and all a Blessed and happy Christmas time. 051, 17 Dec 2018 00:00:00 +1300 https://www.innerwheel.org.nz/blog/813786 Annabelle represents IWNZ at breakfast to mark 125 years of women voting in NZ https://www.innerwheel.org.nz/blog/812997 Annabelle was invited to represent IWNZ at a breakfast at Parliament House to recognise that 125 years ago, on November 28th 1893, more than 90,000 New Zealand women were the first in the world to vote in a General Election.

Shoppers who spend over a certain amount in the store are invited to purchase a bear and then either take it away for a gift, or donate it to a local charity. Last Christmas more than 250 bears were donated by generous locals and collected up by IW members, and most were given to Foster Hope who support foster children. The Women’s Refuge were also recipients. Both organisations were so grateful for the donation of the bears, which are soft and cuddly and can be very comforting for children at a stressful time. This arrangement provides an excellent opportunity to raise the profile of Inner Wheel, as our name and logo are proudly displayed in the store during the promotion. Our ongoing partnership with Whitcoulls will continue this coming Christmas. Everyone benefits from the arrangement – Whitcoulls and Inner Wheel get great publicity, and needy children get a wonderful Christmas gift. 041, 11 Oct 2018 00:00:00 +1300 https://www.innerwheel.org.nz/blog/807263 Highlights from the recent IW District 291 Meeting https://www.innerwheel.org.nz/blog/807006 IW District 291 hosted IWNZ President Darlene Westrupp at their recent District meeting.

The day was blue skied and sunny, amazing to sandwich it between two very wet fronts. Bronwen and Brian, Fiona and Bob then Jean with a friend Anne. Off we set through the green and shadowy obviously loved five acres of native trees and shrubs. The track has been renovated or whatever term is appropriate for such hard work that has been done. Gravel laid with wooden sides over the wet spots, a board walk through high Tree ferns. Most impressive are the steps leading down through the valley and up to a wooden walkway surround encompassing Taketakarau, the ancient Pourere tree that is wound into local history of long ago. The sun slanting through the leaves made the bush sparkle and the birds were quite vocal in their Spring busy ness. After all it is September 1st. It is the first day of Spring and it is NZ Inner Wheel Day. We wandered on commenting on the shapes and shadows and growth that caught our eye. Finally into the sunshine up an incline and out to where our cars were parked. Back down to the town to meet up with Ruth and Lois at the Hot Bread shop for a well earned coffee and “goodies” and of course more discussion and exchange of news that is important to us all.

They lack information and education about menstruation and womens' issues. 042, 12 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +1300 https://www.innerwheel.org.nz/blog/579514 IW Club of Upper Hutt, Days For Girls https://www.innerwheel.org.nz/blog/579510 On the right is Helen Griffin from "Days for Girls" and on the left, Rose Crozier from the Inner Wheel Club of Upper Hutt.
