Here we are in June 2019 and so already it is time for another issue of The Voice, the bimonthly publication for Zonta District 24, keeping us up to date with all things Zontian across NSW and the ACT.
It was interesting to see that in the report from our Lieutenant Governor, Karen Tromp, that Australia is leading the way in Zonta countries with the most young professional members. Also great to see that District 24 has been maintaining our membership numbers, which stand at 523.
Don’t forget that the district conference will be held this year, and it is a combined conference for Australian and New Zealand clubs – sure to be a wonderful event with so many clubs and members likely to attend. Conference will be in Brisbane from September 6th – 8th so if you haven’t already booked it in – get organising!
As always it is inspiring to read about our sister clubs and their activities, raising funds, supporting so many wonderful organisations which assist women and children and providing awards and scholarships to women across the District. Of particular note this issue is the work from the Zonta Club of Botany Bay supporting Kookaburra Kids, as well as their upcoming Vintage and Collectible Fair – surely an event not to be missed. We were also impressed to read about the contribution from boys from Homebush Boys High School to a new safe room at Burwood Courthouse. One of the boys won an award for Young Men Standing Strong against Domestic Violence from the Zonta Club of Sydney West – role models indeed.
Further afield, members from the Zonta Club of Canberra celebrated the 50th anniversary of their club – congratulations! Also congratulations to Alyssa Armstrong, awarded the Armidale club Young Indigenous Women’s award, and the first indigenous school captain of Armidale Secondary College.
We look forward to the next edition of The Voice – and to read more about all the activities of Zonta clubs across NSW and ACT please download the current edition here – The Voice – Issue 6 2018-2020 (1).
