Inner Wheel Club pays tribute to community volunteers
THE Combined Women's Service Clubs and Volunteers Dinner at the Oaks Oasis Resort was an opportunity to say thanks to 80 community "givers”.
The successful event, hosted by the Inner Wheel Club of the Sunshine Coast on March 27, was attended by women aged 18 to 80, representing 25 groups of women's service clubs and volunteers.
They travelled from their homes in Toowoomba, Brisbane and coastal areas of the Sunshine Coast to attend, despite the inclement weather.
An Inner Wheel club spokeswoman said each group had taken up the opportunity to share their stories as well as enjoy the fellowship "that is obvious when 'giving' women gather”.
Guest speakers for the evening were Jacqui Deane, who started the STEMM program for young mothers at Burnside State High School more than 10 years ago, and Summer Bateman one of the brave women who has graduated from STEMM.
