What a success our Centennial Celebration was on July 18, 2019!
Bradford’s mayor proclaimed as Zonta Day in Bradford!
ZC of Bradford raised almost $3,500 of which half supports the Bradford YWCA Building Campaign and half funds both local & international Zonta Scholarships. It was so nice to many District officers and members join us to celebration Zonta International’s 100 years.
