Hundreds of Cowra residents take advantage of the classes each summer.
Cowra Inner Wheel president Heather Treasure invited Linda Stroud a volunteer leader of the MIPS Aquarobic classes to speak at the Cowra Inner Wheel October meeting.
Linda spoke enthusiastically about the program held from 9 am to 10 am Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays at Cowra heated swimming pool.
The sessions are fun, social and improve mobility and fitness.
All classes are done to music.
The leaders have first aid certificates and attend courses to give variety and interest to the sessions.
In thanking Linda for her encouraging talk, Cowra Inner Wheel member Sue Perkins informed us of her own involvement as one of the original helpers of these aquarobic sessions as initiated by Rona Garrie when Brian Lynch was the Pool Manager.
Cowra Inner Wheel members meet on the third Monday each month in the Cowra Multipurpose room.
However, next month on November 20, they are lunching on Christmas fare at The Pott and the Pig.
Inner Wheel is one of the largest women’s voluntary service organizations in the world.
The Cowra Inner Wheel members enjoy each other’s company while raising funds for their local community.
Their Australian project is ‘Cord Blood Research’ and internationally they raise funds for Kini.
This project supports Massai children and their communities in Kenya to a better life through education and health services.
Their founder, an Australian woman, Barbara Parkins, spoke passionately recently to members of Inner Wheel Clubs gathered for a High Tea in Orange.
By being members of an Inner Wheel Club women can feel a sense of satisfaction.
Their efforts can be life changing.
