Zonta Gladstone Club

Zonta Gladstone Club president Gloria Roche, a retired legal secretary, told The Observer about the club’s involvement in the region and its foundations 90 years ago.

The proud history will continue at the Gladstone Yacht Club on Sunday when the local Zonta Club celebrates the organisation’s 90th birthday with a breakfast.The first Zonta club opened in 1919. The Gladstone branch was launched in 1992 and has 38 members.

The Gladstone club assists women who migrate to the region, prepares birthing kits for women and contributes to international causes like the prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission in Rwanda.
