Berkshire Zontians have been busy this fall establishing our committee work and goals. These include: advocacy for women and girls, membership for creating a strong and engaged membership, fundraising to support programs to enhance and promote the status of women and girls along with our scholarship committee which honors students in Berkshire County by assisting with funds for their education.
Other highlights of our club so far this Zonta year include: a successful Period Project drive and donation to local schools and agencies that support women. Our club participated in Zonta International’s 16 days of activism sharing messages to speak out against violence to women.
Thank you to all who supported, ordered, coordinated and delivered poinsettias, cyclamen and wreaths! Those purchases directly enable us to commit dollars for the scholarships we sponsor and support.
I hope that you all have a safe and happy holiday season and I am looking forward to connecting with you to reach our goals to improve the lives of women and girls in Berkshire County and across the globe. Chris
