In September of that year, Zonta International was incorporated in the State of Illinois, USA.

Ray of Light,
|A word from our Past President,
It was so rewarding to serve as the President of the Zonta club of Mankato. This dynamic, energetic group of women volunteer their time and talents in the local community and world by service experiences which demonstrate the ability of women helping women at home and around the world. Our "fun with a purpose" attitude allows this diverse group of individuals to accomplish goals which make a difference in the lives of many. Also, our consultative status and partnership with the United Nations is very rewarding when we realize the dynamics of many voices as an international service club. Thank you for taking the time to see what Zonta represents. I hope you will visit our meetings, participate in our projects, and also work to advance the status of women worldwide.
