I write for Weekend Notes and I take photographs, usually sunsets and sunrises. Occasionally I include my photos in my articles. I like to promote Geelong, and activities around Geelong.
Event:
On Wednesday 25th November, between 6.00pm and 7.00pm, the Zonta Club of Geelong is hosting an Awareness Hour.

Come along and spend an hour with some inspiring women and see if you would like to become part of this dynamic service club. The primary focus of the Zonta Club is to empower women through service and advocacy.

You can hear from club members who will speak about how Zonta's reach extends locally through scholarships, service and advocacy. Zonta Club also works on national and international projects, helping to secure the futures of women in Australia and across the world. Please join Zonta for this Awareness Hour, to learn more about the work of the Zonta Club of Geelong.

The Zonta Club of Geelong Inc. was chartered on the 29th March, 1979. It is club No. 879 in Area 4 of District 23 (District 23 includes Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, Northern Territory and Tasmania).

The Club membership of Zonta Geelong is made up of a broad cross section of women from around Geelong. The members come from a diverse range of professions. The major business of the club is managed by the elected executives, who make up the Board of Directors.

Zonta Geelong supports a range of service projects and awards at the international, district and club levels to help women in Australia and overseas.

Some of those service projects and awards include:

Assembling and distributing birthing kits that provide a clean and safe birthing environment for women who don't have access to professional medical care in developing countries.

Making and distributing breast care cushions for women (and men) recovering from breast surgery in Australia.

Supporting awards to women for education and community service, providing financial assistance to help "kick start" careers and acknowledge the quiet achievers in the community.


The Zonta Geelong club members raise funds for these projects through a range of annual and one-off projects which include theatre nights, fashion parades, auctions, trivia nights, shopping trips and raffles.

The Zonta emblem is a composite of Sioux Indian symbols. The Zonta Rose serves as a symbol of Zonta Rose Day. Zonta Rose Day occurs on the 8th of March. It coincides with International Women's Day.
