Zonta Club of Concord ~January-April 2015 Activities Report


The Zonta Club of Concord kicked off the New Year with a renewed focus on fostering a teamwork environment among membership.  A simple change in our seating arrangements at our business meeting from individual tables to one big table was the solution. Now, instead of having our backs to each other, we can all sit around the same table and see one another.  This facilitates better conversation and camaraderie.  We not only celebrated the New Year with party hats, but we also celebrated and honored Amelia Earhart.  Origami folded airplanes were at each table setting.  Lastly, we acknowledged International Human Trafficking Day as well and recounted information from a dynamic speaker who presented to us on the subject last November.

The Zonta Club of Concord celebrated a very successful ‘baby shower’ for the Baby Layette Project.    more

During the 16 Days of Activism, the Zonta Club of Concord

  • Donated $1,000 to the Sheila Stanley Fund at Women Kind Counseling to support a full round of counseling for a woman in crisis.
  • Held our annual Holiday Auction fundraiser at which we got the word out about the 16 Days of Activism and our local projects to approximately 85 participants.
  • We created a Zonta Club of Concord Says No poster, which was prominently displayed at our event as well as postcards to hand out to participants when they left.
  • We also had our NAMA (New Americans Merit Award) recipient from last year speak at our event.  She is a former refugee from Sudan—she and her family experienced violence and persecution.  She is an inspiration and true testament to the spirit of resilience.
