WOW, what a great global celebration this has been!
Nationally we have been able to enjoy how other clubs have celebrated the event through their social media pages.
Our own club celebrations went well. At our Breakfast function we were delighted to be able to present Julie Dockrill with her Woman of Achievement Award.
Denise Ritchie, our second nomination, was also nominated by Hibiscus Coast so we agreed as Denise was in Auckland that they would undertake the presentation for her there.
We also managed to surprise Anne -Marie Leech with a Champion Award for her dedication and input to New Zealand Netball.
Earlier we had presented Mid South Island Women’s Refuge with a Community Award at the Empowerment Day.
Listening to Karen Hall reflect on the club history, reinforced to me what a difference we have made and continue to make for women and girls locally, Nationally and Internationally.
Following the breakfast, members visited Trotts Garden to plant a Zonta Rose as a more permanent reminder of the 100 years celebrations.
