Dates to Remember

Hi Fellow Zontians, Happy July!

"Service is the rent we pay for being. It is the very purpose of life and not something you do in your spare time." - Marion Wright Edelman

This is a quote that Helen gave me at the last meeting. Doesn't it sound like us? Zonta is committed to both service and advocacy for women. Remember that's what makes us different from many other service organizations.

July 15 at 6pm be at the Police Operations Center! The program is not to be missed! Dr. Laura Smith will speak about Afghan women through the eyes of the Revolutionary Association of Women of Afghanistan. She will show a 10 minute video, then give a 15 minute talk and end with questions. She'll wear a burkah and we can try it on. This a perfect meeting to bring guests and of course potential Zontians. We'll eat first and then have the program followed by the business meeting. Who will be our Zontian of the year? What will Eva and Betty present about the international conference? Come find out! See you there!

Here's the list for those who like to celebrate:
