Sri Lanka Inner Wheel District Chairman appointed

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 23 May 2006, 00:04 GMT]
Mrs. Mangales Pathmanathan took office as the District Chairman of the Inner Wheel District 322 - Sri Lanka for the current year 2006-2007 at the 22nd District Assembly held at Galadari Hotel in Colombo Sunday. Mrs. Vinitha Gunaratne, outgoing District Chairman installed the new District Chairman.

"The present day opportunities are vast and unlimited. We must assess the needs of the community and carry out service projects to meet the requirements of the needy and the under-privileged. Literacy for women, childcare activities, differently able persons, senior citizens, skills development, livelihood support, health, nutrition and water and sanitation are areas where we should focus and deliver services," said Ms Pathmanathan in her acceptance speech.

She added, "We have carried out several service projects large and small in Sri Lanka during the last forty years. Like Friendship, Service is another important cornerstone of Inner Wheel. Projects should not be implemented for projects sake. They should be effective. Effective service projects are needs based. They need not be grandiose."

Mrs. Pathmanathan joined the Inner Wheel Movement in 1978 and was the Charter President of the Trincomalee Inner Wheel Club in the year 2001. She is presently the President of the Colombo South Inner Wheel Club. She is the wife of Rotarian N.Pathmanathan, past District Governor during 2002-2003.

"To suit our growing needs and our cherished culture, our world President Janet Day has given a meaningful theme for this year "SHOW THAT YOU CARE through FRIENDSHIP and SERVICE'. It is time for us to give comfort with a word of love and kindness and to share our time with the young and old who need our service. It is not that you need millions of rupees to implement your project. Be friendly and you need to spend your valuable time with those who are in desperation, in distress and sick. Sharing with needy and the under privileged is the greatest service in these troubled times," said Mrs. Pathmanathan.
