DURING the COVID-19 Leeton's Inner Wheel members have been keeping a low profile with little to no fundraising activities able to go ahead.
However, the organisation did manage to hold its changeover event recently and is planning an event open to all in September.
With 20 people only able to attend the changeover, those there practiced social distancing while hearing from outgoing president Tonetta Fiumara about the past 12 months.
The year included two successful theatre parties - one in aid of the district project and the other for cord blood research and funds.
Newly-appointed district chairman Joy Norrie from Narrandera attended and inducted new member Sue Ekin into the Leeton club.
Ms Ekin had previously been an honorary member.
This year's disbursements of funding went to the Leeton Volunteer Rescue Squad, Leeton Multicultural Support Group, Leeton Girl Guides and Leeton Scouts.
Inner Wheel also supported Leeton Can Assist and Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children.
The new executive for 2020-21 is president Carol Chiswell, secretary Jan Munro and treasurer Lenore Ditton.
"Members keep in contact with each other via email, Facebook and small get togethers for morning tea," Mrs Ditton said.
"We hope to continue with these avenues of socialising and to keep members informed until further notice.
The Inner Wheel Australia conference was to be held in Wangaratta in October this year, but it has been postponed until 2021.
However, while many events have been cancelled in 2020, Leeton Inner Wheel is planning a theatre party for September 13.
The event will be the perfect way to spend a Sunday, with $20 getting attendees refreshments and the chance to sit back, relax and watch the film Made in Italy.
Money raised will go towards the district project, with COVID-19 social distancing and hygiene practices to be in place.
The event gets underway from 3pm on September 13 from 3pm.
Inner Wheel Leeton flashback memories
IT WILL be 10 years in October since Leeton hosted the Inner Wheel Australia Conference.
"(This is) still talked about today when members meet at other conferences," Mrs Ditton said.
More than 420 delegates and friends attended the Leeton conference where they toured the area and enjoyed the food and wine on ffer in the region.
"Fun, friendship and fellowship was the order of the four days over the conference period," Mrs Ditton said.
To top off the event, Inner Wheel Leeton was awarded the Australia Day Award for the Event of the Year 2010.
