Acknowledging & Recognizing

Congratulations!

In this biennium, let us take the time and opportunity to recognize and acknowledge those around us that empower women through service and advocacy.

Acknowledging Donations to Zonta International

District 4 has two clubs contributing more than $20,000 USD to the Zonta International Foundation during the 2018 – 20120 biennium.

The Zonta Club of Kitchener-Waterloo has again been acknowledged for their donation and for the first year the Zonta Club of Oakville has achieved this outstanding recognition at the 65th Zonta International Convention.

Well done ladies!
