Zonta East Auckland celebrated its 35th birthday in style.

On August 2 present members were joined by past members, including seven charter members, women from the SOM committee which did the hard work in forming the club, members from other Auckland area clubs and guests.

“We were honoured by the presence of our new Governor, Phillippa Jacobs-Lory who gave us an informative address on the recent convention and the vision of the new biennium,” Zonta’s Robyn Fox said.

“Michelle Prasad was the after-dinner speaker and she spoke of her journey and the charitable trust she has set up. We look forward to Michelle joining us as our first young professional member.

“Most of the club members contributed in some way to make the evening a huge success and it was great to honour the past and look forward to the future.”
