Plans under way for new year

DECEMBER has kept the members of Zonta busy in preparing the program for the Area 4 Meeting in Stanthorpe on Saturday and Sunday, March 25 and 26.

Stanthorpe will host members from the other clubs in Area 4 Dalby, Toowoomba (two clubs), Ipswich and Warwick

Guest speakers are being arranged and will include District Governor Ans Van Earp, Lieutenant Governor Sandy Venn Brown and Area Director Robyn Finlayson who are also assisting with program and local Zonta members

Leadership training will be a major topic with the remainder of the program yet to be finalised but will include discussion of Advocacy and some Z1 Projects for 2016-2018, including:

Elimination of Obstetric Fistula and the Reduction of Maternal and Newborn Mortality in Liberia

Let Us Learn Madagascar: an Integrated Program for Adolescent Girls

Members and partners enjoyed a wonderful evening of friendship to finish off a successful year at our Christmas party, hosted by Edith and Sal Boccari.

Our January meeting will be lunch at Casley Mount Hutton Winery with our partners, hosted by member Sonya Casley and husband Grant.

The Zonta Club would like to thank the community for supporting our fundraising events and wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
