On August 2, 2014 the Zonta Club of Michigan Capitol Area hosted a reception in the home of Denise Quarles for Tsemaye Opubor Haraeus, former member of the Zonta International Public Relations and Communications Committee. Mrs. Hamraeus’ major responsibilities on the Public Relations and Communications Committee were with the Zonta Says No campaign.
District 15 Governor Cheryl Hall and Lt. Governor Joy Smith along with Zonta sisters of ZCMCA, East Lansing Area Club and the Lansing Club, engaged in a detailed discussion with Mrs. Hamraeus regarding the Zonta Says No campaign, as well as her love, dedication and commitment to Zonta.
Ms. Hamraeus encouraged all in attendance to strive to advance in Zonta and to stay true to the Zonta mission of “service to women”.
