“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill.
Service and friendship are two main pillars of Inner Wheel and we at our club truly believe and live by it. Even though we are a new club, we have done many projects where we have given back to the society in a generous way. The march/April lockdown was no different for us in terms of service. Many of our club members went out of their way to do personalized services in their areas. What was different during the lockdown was not only our members but our children always were a part of our services.
