The Zonta Club of Harrisburg Hershey, District 3, celebrated Zonta International’s 100th birthday on 14 November 2019.
Members and guests enjoyed a trip down memory lane as “Zonta Storytellers” and shared Zonta’s history beginning with Marian de Forest in 1919.
The Zonta Club of Harrisburg-Hershey was one of 62 clubs to receive a Zonta International Centennial Anniversary Grant. The club’s US$5,000 grant went to support Shalom House in Harrisburg and its program “Voices of Hope.”
Shalom House Executive Director Denise Britton attended the centennial celebration and was also awarded the prestigious District 3 Centennial Champion Award. The club was honored to have District 3 Governor Joanne Gallos attend the celebration and present the award to Denise.
The social hour concluded with the group singing a rousing version of “Happy Birthday” to Zonta as Club President Elaine Weinert and Joanne Gallos blew out the candles on the birthday cake.
