The Zonta Club of Grand Island joined with Zonta International to celebrate Amelia Earhart during the month of January. Earhart is recognized each year by Zonta clubs and on 9 January, the Zonta Club of Grand Island, District 4, held an event to do so.
A local actress, Denise Reichard, portrayed Amelia Earhart in a presentation to the Zonta Club of Grand Island, which is just over 12 miles from the site of Zonta's founding in Buffalo, New York.
The presentation was designed as an educational and inspirational experience for new members and to retain and energize longtime members to continue to pursue Zonta's mission to empower women through service and advocacy.
A video of the performance can be found on the Zonta Club of Grand Island's Facebook page.
