Dear Inner Wheel Friends,
Happy Inner Wheel Day! I don’t think any of us could have envisaged last March that we would be spending this Inner Wheel Day in lockdown. It has been such a difficult year and l can only thank you for your continued loyalty to the Association.
I want to pay a special tribute to the large team of officers at Association, District and Club level who have been so supportive throughout the pandemic crisis. Without your commitment and enthusiasm, the Association would not have been able to continue.
It is fitting, on Inner Wheel Day, when we greet our friends from across the world, to reflect on the special qualities of our organization; one that brings together people from so many parts of the globe.
Just as we have not been able to meet as the G.B.& I. family at our Conference, we are also to be deprived of meeting our worldwide friends at Convention. Our sympathies go out to the hard-working Indian Convention Committee as we share their disappointment. I am sure many of us will take the opportunity of joining the virtual Convention they are busy planning.
I never like to end these messages on a negative note – there is now real hope of better times to come, thanks to the skill and expertise of our scientists and rapid development of vaccines. So as we look ahead, I think of the lyrics of George Harrison in the Beatles' 'Here Comes the Sun':
Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, its seems like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun do, do, do
And I say it’s all right.
Let’s echo those words on January 10th and hope for better things to come in 2021.
Yours in Inner Wheel Friendship,
