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”.    

Respectfully Submitted, Jeanette Patterson, ZCMCA Program and Public Relations Chairperson

Zonta Club of Michigan Capitol Area, 
is one of over 1,200 clubs of Zonta International, a worldwide service organization.  Founded in 1919 in Buffalo, New York, Zonta takes its name from the Lakota Sioux Indian word meaning "honest and trustworthy."  Zontians volunteer their time, talents and energy to local and international service projects that are designed to advance the status of women.

Zonta gives you the chance to be a part of something much larger than yourself....
Zonta allows you to give of yourself to others, to actively participate in the selection of service projects to help your community, and to improve the legal, political, economic, educational, health and professional status of women worldwide.

On Tuesday, February 3, 2015 the ZCMCA gathered for their monthly meeting at Kelly’s Downtown.  Members were asked to wear something red in support of February being “Heart Month”.   As the ladies entered the room they were asked to select an item from a red bucket.    At each place setting there was an article that dealt health, life and family.   All articles in the red bucket and at the place settings were in red and members shared what the selected article and the article(s) at the place setting meant to them in reference to their health. 

The Program Committee shared with the Club Members the best indicators for heart attacks and strokes in women, encouraged better attention to accepted best practices for women's mental health and how mental health impacts physical health particularly in women.  Members were encouraged to share Heart/Health information with all the women they care about in their lives.

The Heart Month presentation resulted in a positive outcome for Club Members in the areas of camaraderie, increased familiarity with health facts and information and the achievements of the realization that WE GO RED FOR WOMEN because no one should fight alone.  For each other, we are a hand to hold, a shoulder to cry on a backbone that always stays strong.
