New Day! New Year! New Projects! New Promises!
Our International Inner Wheel President Phyllis Charter said in her lovely theme: Together We Can. I wholeheartedly believe in this, and I know we all do too.
Together we can, because our inspiration and drive is not from a place of show off, but from a deep desire to make and touch hearts and lives. A desire to make a better world for those who life has not been too kind to. A desire to bring hope and succour. A desire to change the status quo. A burning desire for positive change. And together we can channel this desire into great results.
Together we can change the wrong perceptions.
Together we can convert Schools into Happy Schools.
Together we can change societies into Happy Societies.
Together we can make a great difference.
Together we can make happen Miracles.
Dear lovely sisters as a strong, loving and dedicated unit, we can do the impossible!
"Together we can".
