The Zonta Club Honors Local Women


The Zonta Club hosted their annual luncheon last Friday, honoring women of achievement in the area. Several sponsors set up tables before the event, advertising their services and giving out free products. Some of the sponsors included The Safe House for Women, St. Francis Medical Center, Southeast Health, and River Radio.

During the Luncheon, Zonta of Cape Girardeau covered some of the services they provide to the community, as well as their partnership in Haiti. A video showed some of the progress made, and interviewed several of the volunteers, and covered some of the services they provide for women. Zonta Club International is an organization that helps advance the status of women locally and worldwide. The luncheon is a service that recognizes women who have made great strides toward that goal.

Judge Abbie Crites-Leoni was announced the winner of the Zonta Women of Achievement Award. A tribute video was played for her and the other nominees, listing their accomplishments and interviewing their peers.

Tribute videos were also provided for Diana Howard (Lifetime Achievement Award) and Colonel Kimberlee P. Joos (Celebration Award), who were the luncheon’s guest of honors. This year Zonta focused on women in the military.
