The Zonta Club of the Morristown Area was chartered in 1956, and undertakes service projects to benefit women and women’s issues in the local community, and supports projects selected by Zonta International. Members are encouraged to attend as many meetings as possible throughout the year, and to participate in Club service projects, committee work and fund-raising projects. 

Starting September 2015, our Club will be meeting on the fourth Monday of the month at 6:00pm, at the Cosy Cupboard, Convent Station, NJ. Regular meetings consist of a member-paid dinner, combined with a business meeting and program. Please refer to the Club Calendar for specific dates

We invite you to join us at our next Club meeting to become acquainted with Zonta International and the Morristown Area Club. Attendance at your first meeting with our Club will be as our guest, in anticipation that you will be interested in membership.

Please notify us at ZontaMorris@gmail.com if you plan to attend so that an accurate number of meals can be planned. Also, please visit the Zonta International web site at www.zonta.org for additional information about Zonta International.

Members of our club are encouraged to take a moment to think of the dynamic women in their lives who would make excellent Zontians and invite them to join our Zonta Club or other Zonta Clubs.  Think of the sense of sisterhood and fulfillment you have had from being a Zontians.
