Welcome to Zonta International District 1

Hello to all my Sister Zontians,

It seems hard to believe we are already into March and I must say “enough with the snow!” I have learned many things in my life time and I definitely could have gone another 60 years without learning how to use the snow blower. Too late, it is my job now.

Ladies, we have so much going on in our District as well as Zonta International, however, I must begin this message on a sad note.  As many of you know, recently we lost an amazing Zontian as well as a dear friend. Joanne Lambert believed strongly in Zonta’s mission and worked very hard as a club member, committee chair, club president, and most recently, as Lt. Governor. The energy and enthusiasm she brought to the District was absolutely contagious and she did this all while courageously fighting cancer for the past five years. Joanne was a true lover of life and she will be sorely missed by all who had the privilege of being touched by her.

In keeping with Joanne Lambert’s spirit we have asked that Joanne Puopolo take over Joanne’s term as Lt. Governor for the remainder of the 2014-2016 biennium and she has graciously accepted. “JP,”as many of you know her, worked closely with Joanne and they were great friends. JP plans to continue with Joanne Lambert’s ambitious goals for membership. She has strong leadership skills, a great commitment to our mission, a limitless amount of energy and knowledge in all areas of ZI, District and local club activities. JP has served on numerous committees, she has served as Club President of Malden, and was currently serving as Area IV Director.  She brings considerable experience to the Board and we are extremely pleased she has accepted this role.

Filling the role of Area Director vacated by JP will be our Board Secretary, Elizabeth “Liz” Hart. We are so pleased that she has agreed to take on the role.  Liz brings commitment, energy, knowledge and enthusiasm to this post.  I wish to thank both of these dedicated Zontians for accepting their new positions. Please join me in congratulating both of them.

I hope each of our clubs will participate in Zonta’s Young Women in Public Affairs (YWPA) Award in 2015.  I am writing to you with just a little bit of information, and to ask two things from you.

From Zonta International:  “The Zonta Young Women in Public Affairs Program Award was established in 1990 with the goal of encouraging more young women to participate in public affairs by recognizing a commitment to the volunteer sector, evidence of volunteer leadership achievements, and a dedication to the advancement of the status of women.”
