Outreach on Human Trafficking

On January 27, 2016, Peconic Bay joined with the Zonta clubs of Suffolk and Westchester to present a program on human trafficking at the Congregational Church in Patchogue, NY. This was a followup to a successful event three months earlier at the North Shore Library in Wading River, NY, with Patricia Latona as the speaker (see the post on October 28, 2015). The January program was organized by: Kathy Walker, Linda Rundlett and Liala Strotman of Peconic Bay; and Deborah McKee of Suffolk. Read some of the comments circulated afterwards.

“Thanks Deb, it was a pleasure working with you and I hope we can collaborate on more events in the future. It was a worthwhile night and we all enjoyed being together and making a difference. Pat, your presentation gets more moving each time I see it and thanks for coming out on your birthday! We are all looking forward to making a trip to the UN in the spring. Once again, thanks to everyone for making last night possible.”

“Thanks to Kathy Walker for all her efforts in coordinating the evening!  No easy task, with e-mails, flyers, and details, details. Thank you, Patricia, for facilitating the evening, and sharing your time, knowledge and wisdom with us, and on your birthday to boot! It was another opportunity to share the vital importance of ZONTA, and bring awareness to these heartbreaking, all-too-real issues. Thank you ladies!”
– Linda Rundlett

“Congratulations ladies. Thanks to Linda's yummy treats we have 50 dollars for the [ESL] scholarship fund. We sold over 242 of Mayan Hands goods. The presentation was moving. Thanks Linda for setting up the evening. It was great to have such a great showing of Zonta members as well friends who are considering future membership. Best to all! Well done.”
