By Mitch Gaynor

ZONTA Club of Blackall Range held its changeover dinner last week, May 23rd, and welcomed its new board, including new president Margy Henderson.

Outgoing president Ann Koenig welcomed Margy to the chair, saying she had enjoyed the role of president but aftger three years was looking forward to just being a member.

“The board works very well together and our monthly meetings are full of fun, as well as carrying out our responsibilities as a board,” she said. “I welcome the incoming board. Keep up the good work and enjoy the time you have together.”

Margy said she was proud to be stepping up as president of such a wonderful organisation.

“I’ll do my best to keep the club on an even keel and continue to focus on enhancing the lives of women and girls, to grow locally and inernationally, as well,” Margy said. The club also handed over two cheques – to Mapleton Library and Sonshine Sanctuary to help with their community-building projects. The club is continuing its volunteer projects, including its successful birthing kits packing morning, as well as its plant sales and scholarship program.
