Inner Wheel Club Ties Up with Rotary in Scholarship (ICE) Programme
Inner Wheel Club of Butterworth
15 August 2020
IWC Butterworth formalised the awarded of a scholarship to Bawanisri under the Inner Wheel Care & Educate (ICE) Programme of District 330. This programme is a tie up with the Rotary Education Fund by Rotary Club of Bukit Kiara Sunrise. The objective of the ICE Programme is to mentor and make a positive difference in a student’s live, thereby, uplifting an underprivileged family. The club will sponsor Bawanisri’s monthly expenses with a small consideration until she leaves for higher education. Bawanisri also received a new pair of spectacles from RC Butterworth and a collection of study aids and books on the following day (16 August 2020).
This event took place during the first Annual General Meeting of IWC Butterworth at Klinik Gigi Sentosa Conference Room, Bukit Mertajam, Penang.
The turnout of members was good, attending physically and via Zoom video conferencing. The AGM was chaired by Club President, Daisy Rani. Protocols of the Registrar of Societies were followed, as the members celebrated last term’s success stories by IPP Lucy Barrock, reviewed the financial performance over the past year and had the opportunity to ask questions and vote on key issues. These included the approval of the accounts, formalising the election of committee members and re-election of auditors.
The meeting ended with fellowship over High Tea bites served individually packed and Punjabi tea.
