Dear District 4 Zontians,

Here’s News about our Centennial Conference– Of course, we’ll have opportunities for you to share your ideas; receive new information & time to enjoy fellowship with friends – old & new. Here are just some of the new things.

  • You’ll actually Be there to see our ZI Liaison Judy Gorton of Australia install our new officers that you just elected. Judy will also have an open plenary meeting so you can directly ask her your questions.
  • You’ll see the quilt of squares you made at Workshops.
  • There is professional entertainment on Both Friday & Saturday
  • In addition to the Silent Auction of baskets donated by Clubs, Amelia Committee is bringing back the popular Raffle of Smaller Baskets donated by members. You can donate one if you’d like. With both an Auction & Raffle, there’s something for everyone.
  • To celebrate our Centennial, we’re having some contests. We’re encouraging everyone to wear their Zonta badges – new or old… or All of them. We’ll see who wears the most or prettiest, oldest, most unique, etc.
  • We’re also asking everyone to bring their favorite bag from a Conference or Convention. Awards for those from farthest away, oldest, prettiest, most worn, etc.
  • First Timers will get to choose a new bag from those we donate from our personal collections.
  • We’re inviting the 3 recipients you voted to receive the Centennial Awards. There are interesting Tours before the Conference begins & Buffalo is an exciting city with so many different things to do.
  • You suggested the topics for Presentations & Break Out Groups.
  • To save on costs, we’re keeping a list of Zontians who want to share a hotel room. You can contact one if you’d like.

This is Your Conference so we need you to Come. We’ve tried to do everything we could think of to entice you… spent hours & days brainstorming ideas. And we worked hard to keep the registration & your costs only a few dollars more than the last Conference. We want to make it possible for you to come. As soon as some details are confirmed, we’ll publish the Conference Program for you.

You can register as soon as Pay Pal is set up. I hope you’ll all encourage each other to come; carpool; room with you at the hotel & experience the ONE Centennial Conference of your lifetime.

With Zonta spirit,


Bonnie Clesse
