Welcome to Zonta Club of Mt. Pleasant

President: Ruth Helwig

Chartered October 1952

Zonta Club of Mt. Pleasant, 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.
