Women's day celebrated at breakfast

INTERNATIONAL Women's Day will be celebrated early in Coffs Harbour with the Zonta Club's annual IWD Breakfast on Friday, March 6.

The breakfast on March 6 will be from 7am at the Coffs Ex-Services Club and everyone is welcome to attend.

Breakfast will be served at 7.15 and proceedings completed by 8.30, allowing people to get to work on time, but the room will remain open a little longer for socialising. Tickets are available at the Ex-Services Club and from Zonta members at a cost of $25. Zonta Club publicity officer Patricia Funnell said that members had decided to celebrate the occasion this year by looking at what was happening for some women in our own city, bringing together women of different backgrounds and ages.

Rather than having a single keynote speaker, several women who have come from different countries will speak on their experiences.

The breakfast audience will also hear about their community work from a couple of young women who have been selected as recipients of the annual awards given to Year 10 students by the Zonta Club.

Community groups are invited to present a poster or wall display showing aspects of their projects.

Zonta is an international organisation which works to improve the health, education, wellbeing and status of women, locally, nationally and worldwide. The Zonta Club of Coffs Harbour meets on the evening of the third Wednesday of each month.

For further information call Kathy on 6653 2555 or Patricia on 6654 0118.

On International Women's Day, March 8 each year, the achievements and contributions of women all over the world are celebrated.
