In 2011, we:
made over 250 breast cancer care cushions
|Racks and racks of wonderful donated clothes|
|Still wearing that club shirt and name badge!|
|Would you be able to complete your PhD on just $20,000p.a.?|
|What if you had no possessions? How would you cook a meal for the kids?|
Awarded $500 to our Young Women in Public Affairs award winner
|See Samantha at the top? She's our Club's 2009 nomination who went on to win at Zonta International level|
Hosted a Zonta Information stall at the Rotary Conference
|We were the only non-Rotary stall there!|
We also loaded up carloads of new and seondhand linen and towels for the refuges, enjoyed a range of guest speakers, attended Area Meeting and District Conference.
We don't do all this alone. We enjoyed working with an incredible range of people from multiple Canberra Rotary Clubs, students from Dickson College, Australian National University, Karinya House, Bega Women's Refuge, Oasis Refuge, St Vincent's, ATSI Cultural Centre, Lyneham Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and the family, friends and work colleagues of our workplaces.
Success in Zonta is a conundrum - we are deeply grateful to every person assisting us to achieve our goals - and we believe that the work on which we focus makes a difference to the status of women in the Canberra region. Hopefully - one day - some of our work won't be needed anymore.
Best wishes to all Zontians and our friends (Hon Zons) for a successful 2012.
