Welcome to Zonta Club of Lincoln
Check us out on Facebook:
The Golden Z Club at the University of Illinois, sponsored by the Zonta Club of Lincoln, was involved in a number of pre-Coronavirus endeavors. The GZ’s alway send emissaries to help our Club with its biggest fundraiser for local scholarships awarded each Spring. At the Turkey Dinner, we serve in excess of 1,000 patrons. November 2019 was no different. With the GZ’s help and others, the 54th Annual Turkey Dinner was a huge success!
What else have they been up to? They got together to pass out Exam Treat Bags our Club sent to help them through the pre-exam study days;
they participated in the Involvement Fair and spoke about Zonta International and the Golden Z Club with Campus and Community members in Champaign;
and lastly, in February, the GZ’s volunteered at Salt and Light Ministry, a 501(c)3 ministry serving families and individuals in Champaign County who are at or below the poverty line. They helped to fold and organize donations made by the Public for the beneficiaries of the Ministry.
We are proud to sponsor and support them in their efforts to spread the news by word and deed of the wonderful organization we all hold dear, Zonta International.
It’s been a crazy year – I think we can all agree on that. Much has changed and we are all figuring out what our “new normal” looks like. But the Zonta Club of Lincoln is excited to get the 2020-2021 year started! As we kick start this year, we will be looking at the advocacy programs and service projects we can support in our community and beyond. If you have a program you would like to share with us, please send us a message at https://www.facebook.com/ZontaLincoln. We would love to hear from you!
