Thank you Trivia Night sponsors!
Thank you! For celebrating 100 Years of Zonta with us at the District 12 Conference in Billings, MT September 20-22 2019.
"Nearly 100 years ago, founding member, Marian de Forest dreamed of an organization that would bring together women in executive positions and help them reach their rightful places in the professions that rarely had women leaders. Since the creation of Zonta International in 1919, our members have dedicated the last century to empowering women, both in and outside of Zonta."

Civil Conversation: #HearMeTooMontanaThank you to all our experts and attendees of #HearMeToo.It was a big success!#HearMeToo Panel
Motivated by the #MeToo movement, a community panel discussed the availability of resources in Montana to assist victims of sexual assault and harassment, how the assault and harassment affects the victims and their families, and the reasons why victims do not report the incidents. Continued public awareness with information sharing and storytelling is intended to end destructive behavior.

In Loving Memory
Our favorite Zontian and hero Pat Jaffray featured on KTVQ for her support of the Montana Women's Run. Pat was a lifelong cheerleader for the Women's Run and had a goal of 10,000 entrants. She battled cancer and passed away. We run in her honor. Thank you Pat ❤️. http://www.ktvq.com/story/35335613/the-spirit-behind-the-run
