Corowa’s very own Inner Wheel Club is set to go ahead.
Strong interest at last week’s promotion day in Corowa’s main street resulted in 13 women putting their name on the list to join.
Members of the Inner Wheel Club of Yarrawonga-Mulwala visited Corowa on January 18 to promote the opportunity for Corowa and surrounding areas to establish their own club and talked to women about the benefits of a friendship group that also helps out with fundraising for many local, national and international causes.
District Chairman Dallice Robins said she was extremely pleased with the interest shown and described the day as a huge success.
“For the plan to go ahead we needed ten names, and as we have more than covered that requirement it indicates Corowa is ready to embrace this opportunity,” Dallice said.
“We also had quite a few ladies stopping by to ask questions and take home information.”
Both Dallice and another Inner Wheel Club member, Rosemary Clark, delivered brochures and information to many of the businesses in town and they are hopeful of receiving further enquires.
If you are new to town, looking to form new friendships, have fun and fellowship and enjoy social outings while at the same time contribute to your community, as well as nationally and internationally, then Inner Wheel is for you, Dallice said.
An information session will be held on Tuesday, February 6 from 2pm at the Corowa Community Hub.
The invitation to attend the information session is open to any woman, over the age of 18, who would like to come along and learn more about Inner Wheel.
Inner Wheel Clubs and Districts help fund cord blood research with a national appeal each year called Coin For A Cord.
In Australia, Inner Wheel has raised more than $2 million and provided 36 grants of up to $65,000 for research into the use of cord blood to treat such illnesses as cerebral palsy, leukaemia, cystic fibrosis and prostate cancer.
Those interested in joining can contact Dallice on 0428 875 748; Rosemary on 0418 174 756 or Bernadette on 0419 526 312.
