On June 5, 1947, the Zonta Club of Midland was charted by Zonta International. Nineteen charter members were inducted at its first meeting at the Midland Country Club. Mrs. Dolores Cassidy, co-owner of the Frolic Theatre, was elected its first president. Today, the Midland Club ranks among the largest Zonta Clubs in the world.
The Zonta Club of Midland supports fundraising efforts for both international and local initiatives. Its first local scholarship fund was started in 1951. Early fundraising activities included getting businesses to donate items for auction. Delores loved to bake and got the Zonta Club to sponsor bake sales to raise money to help feed others. Other fundraising featured the “Aura of Spring” fashion shows and roast beef dinners, complete with homemade desserts, in the 1960’s, and the children’s film series were featured in the 1970’s.

Women of Michigan, Lets Rally for Equal Pay
April 25th many Midland Zonta Club members joined members of many area women's groups and others at the Michigan Equal Pay Day Rally.
Zonta International envisions a world in which women’s rights are recognized as human rights and every woman is able to achieve her full potential.
In such a world, women have access to all resources and are represented in decision making positions on an equal basis with men.
In such a world, no woman lives in fear of violence.
