Every year at this time our gathering becomes a bit special because it is the time when the new President for the year takes office.
In June our lovely Jane Warren stood down, after ceremoniously hanging the heavy chain of office on Angie Saunders shoulders. We presented Jane with the usual bouquet together with a tapestry of her initial and a photographic memoir of her year. Jane has galvanised us into supporting 1st Responders locally and we have been able to donate a fair sum for their charity alongside our many other activities and talks during her year. Jane, thank you from all of us.
Angie takes office during our 70th year celebrations following our brother organisation Rotary who celebrated their 70th last year. We will have some extra trips out and about, a charity lunch in November which is attended by upwards of 90 people each year and is very popular, together with the usual Inner Wheel activities we get up to, to enjoy ourselves.
In July we have our standard meeting, but in addition on 21st July we are holding our coffee morning at a member's Somerton home in aid of funds for our 70th celebration due to be held on 25th February next at the Hollies, Yeovil which promises to be a great occasion with a special speaker to round off the festivities.
Do I make you envious? I hope so, but ladies you can come and see what we are all about and what we get up to. Just call Dorothy on 01458 252648 and I will explain more. We meet at the Langport Arms on 2nd Monday each month at 12 for 12.30 start.
