On Friday night we are planning a “Zontians Wanna Have Fun” event including dinner. Reach deep into your closets and wear your favorite 70’s outfit. There will be a little something for the best outfit. Governor Debbie and the past governors have a few tricks up their sleeve as well, so the evening promises to be fun.
We will be celebrating the 85th Anniversary of the Amelia Earhart Fellowship program with special guests, past international president Dr. Sharon Langenbeck and Dr. Andrea Ghez, a 2020 Noble Peace Prize recipient in physics. Both are Amelia Earhart Fellows. Six of the 2023 AE Fellows are from District 9 and they will be recognized at lunch on Saturday.
