Dear DC Zontians,
Thanks to all the Zontians who joined us at the last dinner meeting to hear about Girls on the Run (GOTR). It was fun to learn about the organization and its mission. GOTR combines an interactive curriculum and running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. Their core curriculum addresses many aspects of girls’ development – their physical, emotional, mental and social well-being and provides them with the tools to make positive decisions and to avoid risky adolescent behaviors. There are many ways our club can support the young ladies on the Washington, DC GOTR teams and I look forward to hearing more from our Service Committee on
their plans for future projects with this growing.
I cannot believe we are almost halfway through October 2012! For me autumn is a season for big decisions -- like whether or not it's too late to start spring cleaning. With the holidays just around the corner and coming quickly I hope you will make the time to donate to the holiday card. It may be our largest fundraiser of the year. Look forward to seeing you at the November Dinner Meeting where we will have the opportunity to meet some of our scholarship recipients..
Look forward to seeing you soon!
Deena Weatherly Douglas,
President, Zonta Club of Washington D.C.
