The Zonta Club of Melbourne was chartered on December 1, 1983. Melbourne's Zontians opened their ears and hearts to the needs of our community to form a group of strong women who would empower other women in our community. This caring attitude is reflected by focusing on advancing the status of women by providing service and educational opportunities. Members attend meetings monthly to coordinate community projects and fund raising activities.
