MATHEWS LEADERSHIP FORUM

Zonta helps sponsor this event. Community business people have dinner with CLU students, some serving as facilitators at each table. Keynote speaker and topical discussion.

INTERSERVICE CLUB LUNCHEON

Luncheon is held on a Thursday during CVD carnival week. All service clubs and volunteer organizations in the area enjoy getting together. Awards are given to service club of the year - under 50 members and over 50 members, volunteer organization of the year and youth organization of the year. The winners of these awards are responsible for organizing and setting up the luncheon for the following year. Each member pays for her own lunch.

SPECIAL KID'S DAY

Since 1985, Zonta has organized and hosts a Friday morning at the Conejo Valley Days carnival for "special needs" children. Schools which participate are selected by local school districts. Approximately 350 children, some severely, some mildly handicapped, along with hundreds of one-on-one volunteers, enjoy games, rides, petting zoo, clowns, ambulance, police motorcycle and car, fire engine, hamburger luncheon, frozen treats and more. This day requires a lot of coordination with various schools and organizations. We're there setting up at 8:00 am and cleaning up at 12:30 to 1:00 pm. We usually head to EI Torito afterwards. Great service project!

INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION (EVEN-NUMBERED YEARS)

Conferences are designed to allow members to meet Zontians from all over the District and at the International Convention, Zontians all over the world. New officers are elected at each event for the new bi-annum and workshops and keynote speakers talk on a variety of topics relating to women’s advocacy. At convention amendments to bylaws are presented and voted on. A variety of events occur at each venue including dinners, tour trips, entertainment, and information shared about Zonta. Our club pays for 1 delegate to attend. All other members wishing to attend are responsible for their own expenses. These are events well worth attending!

VICTORIAN TEA AND SILENT AUCTION

Our Final Tea and Boutique will be held on November 6, 2006 - our primary fundraiser. Members and friends set 60 decorated tea tables for four. Tea served elegantly, in the old English fashion. A Silent Auction held before tea - primarily themed baskets and items solicited by members or donated. This is our most important and time consuming event. We send out 500 invitations and are sold out every year.

HOLIDAY-PARTY

Newest members plan a party for member’s spouses and guests. This fun event is held in a member’s home with potluck appetizers and sometimes a catered meal. Gifts of $15-20 brought for fun exchange game.
