Who are we?

The Inner Wheel Club Zug was founded on 2 September 1999 by partners and relatives of Rotarians from all five Rotary Clubs in the Canton of Zug. The charter ceremony took place on 15 April 2000 at the Casino Zug.

Currently, the club has 47 members.

Our meetings are held (with exceptions) on the first Tuesday of each month at the Park Hotel in Zug.

We gladly welcome women who are interested in Inner Wheel and who wish to support and promote its ideals to join us.

Monika Barmet is president for the period of office 2022/23.

«Our life is the history of our encounters.»

This quote by Anton Kner is the motto that accompanies us through the club year.

Inner Wheel

Based on the Rotary symbol, the Inner Wheel represents friendship and affiliation with Rotary. However, Inner Wheel has always been independent.

Inner Wheel was founded in Manchester (UK) in 1924 by Margarette Golding to give club structures to women's involvement. Margarette Golding is described as a truly remarkable woman of great courage, foresight, intelligence and business acumen. A trained nurse with Welsh roots, she had a great social commitment and helped orphans and sick children.

International Inner Wheel has three aims:

  • To cultivate genuine friendship,
  • to encourage service to others,
  • to promote international understanding.

The Zug Inner Wheel Club is open to women who share the values and aims of International Inner Wheel and who wish to take an active part in the life of the Club.
