Theme Motivation

My hope for the theme is to encourage our members to educate themselves on Inner Wheel, by examining, honouring and learning from our Inner Wheel heritage. We can use this knowledge to ensure our growth, individually and collectively, to enable Inner Wheel to participate more confidently and successfully.
It is with this empowerment and support that Inner Wheel will further grow, evolving to adapt to the needs of today’s members and modern society. When everyone moves forward, evolving positively together, great success will follow.
A British Philosopher once said, "the mind is like a garden; if we plant good seeds we will have a great garden; if we plant poisonous plants, that is what we will reap and if we do not plant anything at all, it will be idle and the weeds will take over".
I hope that, using the 2018-19 theme, we will all ‘plant good seeds’ to ensure that both Inner Wheel and its members continue to make a difference, and flourish around the world.
