Zonta Club cel­e­brates 15 years in Whit­sun­days

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

IT WAS a night of glitz and glam­our as the Zonta Club of the Whit­sun­days cel­e­brated its 15th birth­day at the Reef Gate­way Ho­tel last Thurs­day.

More than 60 people at­tended the cel­e­bra­tion which at­tracted char­ter mem­bers from Syd­ney, Bris­bane and Townsville.

Zonta’s area di­rec­tor Hi­lary Grant also made the trip from Char­ter Tow­ers for the mile­stone event.

Lo­cal me­dia li­ai­son Sandii Hansen said the evening was sen­sa­tional.

“A ma­jor high­light for many of us was that we were able to wel­come so many of the char­ter mem­bers back to the Whit­sun­days for the cel­e­bra­tion,” she said.

“It was the first time in the his­tory of Zonta that we had all the pres­i­dents of the club to­gether since the club was foundered in 1999.”

A fan­tas­tic pre­sen­ta­tion on the his­tory of the club was made by Joan Wat­son and Pam Gra­ham with Ann Leath­wick, May McPhail, Verniece Irv­ing-Lee, Zonta Whit­sun­days pres­i­dent An­gela Spicer and Hil­lary Grant also mak­ing speeches.

“The pre­sen­ta­tions trans­ported us right back to 1999 through to the cur­rent day which showed how pro­duc­tive we have been in the lo­cal com­mu­nity over the past 15 years and we will def­i­nitely con­tinue on,” Ms Hansen said.

A spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion was also made to hon­our all pres­i­dents of the club.

The Zonta Club of the Whit­sun­days will be host­ing their next break­fast meet­ing at the Cof­fee Club on Tues­day, April 3 at 7.30am.

Rowena Kis­sun from the Whit­sun­day Health Clinic will be the guest speaker at the event and new mem­bers are wel­come to at­tend. For more in­for­ma­tion email zon­ta­club7@hot­mail.com.
