A Message From our District 10 Governor
Dear District 10 Zontians,
I hope this message finds each of you well and looking forward to a time of Thanksgiving. As a Zontian, I feel I have a lot for which to be thankful.
I am thankful for a wonderful 4th District 10 Governor’s Summit hosted by the Greater East Texas Zontians. Kim Hawes and team were wonderful hostesses and went all out to make District 10 Zontians feel welcome in Longview, Texas – thank you Zonta Club of Greater East Texas!
I am thankful I have the opportunity to wish the Zonta Club of Fort Worth a happy 95th birthday – what an accomplishment!
Speaking of birthdays, I am thankful to wish Zonta International a happy 103rd birthday! Zonta has come a long way since our founding in 1919. Please check out this video of “Zonta Now and Then” on the ”zontamembershipwow!” YouTube Channel at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vW7hRD3IMQo. Be sure to subscribe to this channel so you will be aware when new content is available. There is no doubt Zonta, and the world in which we live, has come a long way since 1919, but we all know there is more work to do!
I am thankful to be able to participate in the “Every Member Every November” Campaign so I can ensure I have an impact on the global level by supporting Zonta Foundation for Women Programs and Service Projects. I hope you will join me by making your donation today at: https://secure2.convio.net/zonta/site/Donation2?1400.donation=form1&df_id=1400&mfc_pref=T
I am thankful to have the opportunity to participate in advocacy events to say no to violence against women. The 16 Days of Activism from November 25th through December 10th provide an opportunity for Zontians all over the globe to “Orange the World!” I am looking forward to seeing how District 10 Zontians participate, and hope you will share you story with Zonta International and include these hashtags in your social media posts:
#ZontaD10ZNVAW #ZontaD10Advocacy #Zonta16Days
I am also thankful for my District 10 Board and Committee Chairs that continually exhibit the Zonta Spirit through their kindness and support of one another. These ladies set an example I hope we all can emulate as we build an environment and culture where every Zontian feels valued and supported.
Finally, I am thankful I have the opportunity to serve as your District Governor. You – our Zonta Members and Clubs – warm my heart daily and make me so proud to be a Zontian because of your dedication and exemplary service in support of our mission.
Thank you for the opportunity to work with each of you to build a better world for women and girls!
Governor, District 10
