Report on September Meeting

We had a full house at our September meeting on the 14th.

Our special guest for the evening was Kathy Rau, Area 1 Director, who reported on the Zonta International Convention, held this past June in San Antonio, Texas.

Kathy also showed pictures and passed out material she had collected from the international conference. It sounded like a great event, and we learned a lot about the operations side of this large organization.

A few events are coming up.

An aside: Peconic Bay is one of seven clubs in Area 1, which is part of District 3. Zonta International divides the world into districts. Our district consists of 33 clubs, organized into four areas. District 3 counts close to 1,000 individual members. It covers all of New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia, part of Pennsylvania, and portions of New York, including New York City and Long Island, the eastern end of which is Peconic Bay territory.
