ONE hundred years of community service by women worldwide was celebrated last week at a luncheon hosted by the Inner Wheel Club of Swan Valley.

The celebratory event was held at The Brook Bar and Bistro in Ellenbrook where president Jan Howe welcomed 50 members of Inner Wheel Clubs of Kalamunda, Scarborough, Wanneroo and Kwinana Rockingham Districts, as well as Rotary guests.

A toast to recognise the 100 years of the worldwide movement of Inner Wheel was proposed by Lorraine Reed, a long term member of the club.

Inner Wheel, an organisation for women supported by Rotary Clubs commenced in Manchester, England, on January 10, 1924 and now has 108,000 members in almost 4000 clubs in 104 countries around the world.

The first club was chartered in Australia in 1931. Each club is independent, and provides social activities for women, whilst supporting many charities, both locally and overseas.

The Swan Valley club meets for lunch monthly with presentations by topical guest speakers.

Currently, the club supports the work of Days for Girls, Coin for Blood Research, Ascension Connection and Care Bags.
