Thursday, August 22 at 7pm come on out to the Loons game! We are celebrating 100 years of Zonta and using this opportunity to educate the community on the advocacy efforts of Zonta over the past 100 years, recruit new members, and raise awareness of Zonta throughout our community. Everyone is invited and asked to bring family and friends! Lawn tickets are 7 through the club, sign up and pay at any meeting in May or June. It's a ZING, advocacy and membership event all in one! Questions - contact Rachelle.
