Ellen Dolsen
Zonta Pontiac NorthOakland Club

I met Ellen almost 20 years ago when working on a training project.  We teamed up with another trainer and developed a week-long leadership program for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.  We delivered the program over 25 times and had a wonderful time, becoming fast friends in the process.  I talked about Zonta and Ellen was interested and joined our club.  What an asset.  She served in many capacities, but was president for 3 years, which allowed us to transition back to the regular Zonta biennial cycle.

Ellen brought joy and insight wherever and whenever she was.  She generously always said yes to my requests to present at the North American Interdistrict Meetings—4 of them—and was always a great hit.  She agreed to serve as District 15 Area 4 Director and spearheaded fantastic training during her term for all members of the District.  We worked together on a Zonta Club Officer Training template that is fantastic.

Bill and Ellen were married for 36 years and were each other’s very best friends.  Bill was fighting cancer when they married, and Ellen had two bouts of it.  They supported each other in all their interests and Bill was a big help in many club projects.

Because of Ellen’s zest for life, no one ever believed her age.  Her energy and dynamism lasted until two years of chemo did it in.  She died at 77, looked like 57 and had the energy of 37.  She is a bright star now in our universe.

Announcing Zonta District 15 Fall Conference 2015

Zonta International is a leading global organization of professionals empowering women worldwide through service and advocacy.
District 15 was well represented with 21 members who attended the North American InterDistrict Meeting in Minneapolis June 12 - 14, 2015

  Jane White, Director Michigan Human Trafficking Task Force                                                                                                              
Jane White has shared important information regarding the latest RUMOR that Michigan is #2 in human trafficking which was inadvertently misrepresented and shared during our Spring Workshops by myself.  Please take note of her wise approach to sharing 'sensational' information which MAY NOT be able to be substantiated.  It is important that we stay focused on the message rather than the sensationalism. Please read and share. ~Cheryl
