Women in Service May 14, 2022
Women in Service, an annual event honoring outstanding women volunteers throughout the Santa Clarita Valley, hosted by the Zonta Club of Santa Clarita Valley, will take place on May 14, 2022 at The Centre in Santa Clarita. Registration begins at 10:00 am followed by lunch and the program at 11:00 am.
The Zonta Club of Santa Clarita Valley will honor dynamic volunteers who are nominated by non-profit organizations that share our mission. These outstanding women contribute their time and expertise to make our community a better place to live. All nominees will be honored; however, one nominee will be chosen to receive the Carmen Sarro Award for “Improving the Status of Women Through Community Service”.
This award, designated in 2004, recognizes Carmen, a longtime Zonta member who passed away in 2003. In addition to her Zonta service, she volunteered for several other organizations in Santa Clarita Valley. Mary Ree and Darleen Lyons, Co-Chairs for this event, say “Zonta wanted to remember Carmen for being an icon through her self-giving and dedication to the community. We encourage Zontians to emulate her.” Carmen’s daughter, Christine Sexton, takes pride every year in presenting this exceptional award.
Reservations are $75 before May 1, 2022 and $90 after.

Zonta Club installs new Z Club Monday Jan 24, 2022
Zonta International believes young people are important to achieving gender equality and ending violence against women and girls around the world. To improve the lives of women and girls globally now and for generations to come, we must invest in youth development and mentor young leaders for gender equality.
Through the Z Club Program, Zontians work to bring Zonta International’s mission to empower women through service and advocacy to students around the world and to stimulate new and meaningful student-led service and advocacy projects.
Z clubs are formed on secondary school campuses or in communities. Student clubs are designed to provide opportunities for young people to develop communication and leadership skills, explore career alternatives, and increase their international awareness and understanding through service. Clubs are open to all genders.
Zonta clubs sponsor Z Clubs and provide students with the resources, information and guidance they need to improve the world around them. Z club students plan, organize and participate in unique activities that give them hands-on experiences in improving the lives of others at both a local and international level. The sponsoring Zonta club will provide young people in its community with the tools, information and guidance they need to impact the world around them and provide focus on improving the lives of women and girls.
