Yellow Rose Day

Each year on March 8 in recognition of International Women’s Day, the Zonta Club of Lincoln celebrates “Yellow Rose Day” by honoring three women from the community. This year, Zonta Club members Chris Huff, Jen Grimaldi, and Connie Dehner presented yellow roses to: Pattie Becker, retiring this year from Eaton Corporation; Susan Gehlbach, City Clerk, also retiring this year after many years of service to the city of Lincoln; and Linda Franz, business owner / lead stylist at Towne House Beauty Shop for 51 years, and a member of Zonta. Please join in celebrating these three women for their hard work and dedication!

Zonta Club of Lincoln is a classified service organization of executives and professionals with the hope of “advancing the status of women worldwide through advocacy and support.”
