Members of Zonta Club of Ottawa, attended the Zonta District 2 Fall Seminar in Oswego, NY on the weekend of October 20th. What a surprise and as we proudly received from Past International Governor (PIG) Marjorie Lavin the…Zonta District 2 Governors ‘ZI HONOR AWARD’ Team event – 2018 Fall Seminar
Zonta International District 2 Honor Award:
This award was initiated and developed by Past Governor, Margaret Mitchell, 2008-2010, to be presented to a club for an event that displays a sense of teamwork in working together to promote Zonta’s Mission. Sample projects could be an Amelia Earhart event, a fundraiser, chartering of a Z club, a Service project, opening a new club or hosting a seminar, workshop or conference.
Our club was recognized for the following…
#1. New Cornerstone Shelter for Homeless Women Fundraiser:
We raised $6500 to sponsor a room at the new shelter, for a homeless woman. Also that we are continuing to raise money and the hands on work we will continue to do once the women move in.
#2. ManUP Project: (group of male students from LDHSS)
Fundraising for a program that we believe in and that we have financially sponsored since 2015. Male high school students teaching other male students to respect girls/women, no harassing, no bulling, no violence etc…
I’m so very proud of everyone, with all that has happened since 2016 we still did amazing service and advocacy in our Ottawa community and to be recognized for this TEAMWORK is an incredible feeling!
