Message from District Chairman Alice Lau

District Chairman 2014-2015, District 331, Alice Lau

I am very honoured to be the third District Chairman for Inner Wheel District 331 for 2014/2015. I thank you, members of Inner Wheel District 331, for your trust and confidence in me.

I am grateful to have many experienced and capable Inner Wheel members in my Committee. With their support and concerted effort, we hope to take District 331 to greater heights.

I wish to congratulate IPDC Nany Gotze and her District Committee Mmembers for a rewarding

District Inner Wheel year. I also wish to thank our Founder Chairman Rokiah Staun for her advice and guidance to the District 331.

Friendship is certainly the strength and stability of Inner Wheel. I encourage all our Inner Wheel members, in the spirit of International Inner Wheel, to work towards IIW theme for 2014/2015 – “Light The Path”. Let us share Inner Wheel by recruiting more members and forming more clubs.

I look forward to visiting you.

Closing Message from IPDC Nany Gotze

District Chairman 2013-2014, District 331, Nany Gotze

My year as District Chairman 2013-14 was just the second of the new District 331. Though I think my job was not as taxing as that of PDC Rokiah in the first year, there was the huge task of getting appropriate resolutions passed for the future of this young district. And then there was the Joint District AGM 330/331 – held here in Singapore in March – to be organised.

The workload for organising such an event was enormous – but the results extremely rewarding! Especially when it came out to be such a memorable AGM! I should like to again express my sincere gratitude to the Organising Committee headed by PDE/PDISO Dr. Joanna Sie, and everyone who assisted and thereby contributed to its success. A big thank goes to PNR Dr. Lucy Ooi who helped the committee to solve some last-minute problems. Last but not least my special thanks to IWC Singapore-West Charter Member Mary Hoe-Tan who was able to secure funds for us which enabled the district to provide some subsidies for lowering the registration fees.

The experience of being a District Chairman was a valuable and life-changing one. Not only that one can better bond with each club of the District but also enjoying the fellowship and the hospitality, and by this strengthening the friendship that ties, all in all, it was unforgettable.

I am also extremely pleased to announce that during my year the three clubs in Singapore had adopted a joint project according to the ideals of “Happier Children”. This project aimed at fulfilling the wishing-lists of 'Child at Street 11' in Ang Moh Kio, Singapore, a childcare and before and after school care centre for children of 18 months old to level primary four. We visited them in big numbers, catered the food and gave them a party in their own centre. We took some of them for an outing to an indoor Playground Polliwog and fed them on IIW Day. The bigger part of the project, was to fund the renovation of their study room, building a carpeted story-telling corner, making shelves at the wall for storing their artworks and adding some colourful shelves on the floor for their bags.

As I pass the baton to our third District Chairman Alice Wong/Lau, I would like to congratulate her and her Executive Committee and wish them all a good head-start and a fantastic and fruitful year with also lots of fellowship ahead!

Nany Gotze
District Chairman 2013-2014
