Inner Wheel’s busy time

TO CELEBRATE Inner Wheel Day the ladies of Montrose Inner Wheel made a very generous donation of toiletries and non-perishable foodstuffs to the Salvation Army Corps based in Brechin.

Major Yvonne Flowers and Major Brian Flowers were overwhelmed by their generosity. The goods will be distributed locally to those in need.

The speaker at the January meeting of the Inner Wheel was Rotarian Neil Jones. A freelance feature writer and critic for the internationally distributed magazine ‘Opera Now’, he gave members an interesting and enthusiastic illustrated talk entitled ‘Travels through the Operatic Alphabet’.

Using each of the chosen letters he took the members on an operatic world tour giving an interesting backgound to the place, its connection with opera and finally playing a snippet of the opera concerned. He managed only five letters of the alphabet, time constraints preventing him from doing more.

A vote of thanks was given by Inner Wheel member Sandra Johnson.
