Welcome to Zonta International District 1

Zonta FlowerBed in Halifax

Written by Kathryn Patterson Secretary/Treasurer Zonta Club of Halifax

This is an early picture of the raised flower bed Carol Dobson of our Club arranged to have planted in the Public Gardens in the middle of Halifax – At this time of year thousands of local residents and thousands of tourists on the many, many cruise ships that come to our Port have a tour of the Public Gardens, and this raised flower bed is inside the main gate and on the main path through the gardens.  We will send pictures when the flower bed is in full bloom, but this is very exciting for our Club and for Zonta in heightening our profile in the area and abroad. Stay tuned.

District 1 Newsletter June 2016

It's hard to believe we are at the end of the biennium. I want to take a moment to thank each one of you for your efforts to help us to take great strides toward achieving Zonta’s vision. As you know, this vision is of a world in which women have access to all resources and are represented in decision-making positions and every woman is able to achieve her full potential.

This is an exciting time for Zonta; we’ve accomplished so much and have a lot planned for the 2016 - 2018 biennium; service projects and educational programs benefiting women, girls and communities around the globe. ZI has launched a new sleek and updated website with our Zonta brand (be sure to visit and check it out), provided membership and marketing materials and ZI has launched the “Add Your Voice” campaign.
Our District’s mission is to keep our momentum going by engaging our entire membership, by continuing to provide training and professional development opportunities, and attracting new members to join Zonta. We want to work with all of you, to continue to make strides in contributing to the Club, the District and International as powerful advocates for change in our local and international communities So, lets ALL continue to work together for the benefit of Zonta.
I’m sure you have heard me say “We may be a small district -- but we are mighty” and I know that we are a formidable force of members, clubs and a district; and that we WILL impact the lives of women and girls locally and around the world.  I appreciate the opportunity to continue to serve enthusiastically and to continue fulfilling Zonta International’s goals for the coming biennium along with all of you.
I'm looking forward to seeing you in Nice!

suggested she consider arranging a shorter tour for Zontians attending the Fall Conference.
