We are a group of Professional and Active women who believe that we have a duty to give back to the community that has nurtured us. Zonta members work to improve the legal, political, economic, educational, health and professional status of women.
We meet on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm for 7 pm at the Belair Park Country Club. Although membership in Zonta is by invitation, if you are interested in becoming involved in Zonta and its projects please contact our club via email at email@example.com. One of our membership committee members will contact you to answer any questions you might have and to invite you to attend a meeting to see what we are about. We look forward to hearing from you.
We became a part of Zonta International in 1987. In June 1987 Dr Heide Taylor, a member of the Adelaide Zonta Club and who was known as Mother Zonta, arranged several meetings with a number of professional women in the Hills area with a view to founding a new Club.
The Charter Dinner of the Zonta Club of the Adelaide Hills Area as it was called originally was held at Mt Lofty Golf Club in October 1987and was attended by 34 Charter members. Elected at that meeting was the first President, Dr. Joy O'Hazy and Vice President, Pat Mudge.
