Handover and installation hi-tea meeting
Inner Wheel Club of Kuala Lumpur
3 September 2020
Members of the Inner Wheel Club of Kuala Lumpur finally got to meet up for a physical meeting on 3 September 2020 after close to a period of six months due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The occasion was the installation of our 72nd President, Mrs Caylize Sabado by her predecessor, Mrs Sue Pon. The Executive Committee 2020-2021 was subsequently installed by President Caylize Sabado. A token of appreciation was presented by her to all her committee members, after which she delivered her maiden speech to the Club. This year’s installation was simple without the flourish of past installations. Yet it was a meaningful gathering where we saw the changing-of-the-guard for a new year and also the induction of three new members.
After the official part of the meeting, a scrumptious high-tea was served, with some extra food added into the menu by the President and District Extension Chairman Juanita. A birthday cum Anniversary walnut butter cake was personally baked by the President too. One of the Club committee members, Datin Gerardine Lesslar, took the initiative to organise a surprise karaoke and dance session for entertainment (video). During this time, a collection was made from the members who wished to donated towards the “Water Poverty Challenge”, a President’s service project for communities in need of safe drinking water. It was indeed an evening filled with joy, love and laughter.
