Service and Advocacy

Looking ahead, Peconic Bay Zonta will be doing a service project with the Parent Leadership Initiative in April 2011.

Looking back, in November 2010, we prepared at harvest meal for the homeless served by Maureen's Haven. In the photo at the top (or left), some of our members are gathered at the home of Jackie Pottgen, who is carving the turkey. Jackie is the newest member of Peconic Bay.

More recently, on March 8, 2011, we gathered for a business meeting at the home of Kay Jones. Appropriately, it was International Women's Day. Our guest for the evening was Judith Wilenski, with whom we walked in October 2010 to raise money for breast cancer research.

International Women Day's is the same day of the year as Zonta Rose Day. A yellow rose has been a favorite Zonta symbol for many years. On this day, Zontians worldwide are encouraged to distribute yellow roses or items bearing the image of yellow roses, accompanied by information about Zonta International and issues relating to improving the lives of women. In the second picture (or right), notice the bouquet of yellow roses.
