The evening started with a warm welcome to the Guest of Honor Mrs. Rathi Karthigesu an eminent personality from the field of performing arts. This was followed by lighting of the friendship candle by Inner Wheel District 331 Chairman Shirin Ghadiali followed by toasts and then the welcome speech by Organizing Chairman Dr. Lucy Ooi.
The highlight of the evening was the Charter Ceremony. The new Club “Inner Wheel Club of Singapore Central” was inducted by the District Chairman Shirin Ghadiali, who read the citation and inducted President Rati as Charter President. After a short address, President Rati inducted her Committee and members. She then presented their name badges and citation with a red rose of friendship.
The evening had lots of fellowship and entertainment too. Our young and talented newly inducted IWCSC members Natasha Karanjia and Lipika Bhattacharya were the emcees for the evening. They entertained guests with their humour and kept them glued to their seats. Our own multi-talented Organizing Chairman Dr. Lucy gave an outstanding singing performance to the tune of NAFA Jazz ensemble. IWCSC Vice- President Kajal Agrawal along with her group gave an energetic performance of Bhangra dance in colorful dresses. There was also an outstanding performance of a hand mime team from Charis Productions, a group comprising of adults and students from a small Mandarin Church. The act reflected the values that Inner Wheel embraces – hope, love, faith and courage.
Guests enjoyed the dinner and took away the lucky prizes of fabulous gifts contributed by the Club members. GOH Rathi Karthigesu, shared her thoughts with the guests and praised the exemplary work by Inner Wheel. She was presented with flowers by Organizing Chairman Dr. Lucy Ooi.
