About Us

The Zonta Club of the Riverland Club Charter was signed in July 1985 at a charter dinner held at the Renmark Hotel. The club became incorporated in 1996.

To meet the goals and Objectives of Zonta, each member becomes involved in a committee of interest such as advocacy,, Awards, Service, Fundraising, United Nations and Publicity.  Our membership includes members from all five towns across the Riverland. Our members are actively involved in hands on service to local and international service projects as well as award programs aimed at furthering woman’s education, leadership and youth development.
We enjoy hearing from a wide range of interesting Guest Speakers at our meetings on issues relevant to our goals and objectives.

We welcome visitors and new members over dinner on the first Tuesday of each month, mostly at the Berri Resort Hotel.

The first Zonta club was formed in Buffalo, New York in 1919, by journalist and playwright Marian de Forest. ‘Zonta’ is a derivative of the North American Sioux Indian word meaning ‘honest and trustworthy’ and the Zonta emblem is a composite of a number of symbols. Zontians volunteer their time, talents and energy to local and international service projects that advance the status of women and meet Zonta’s Objectives.
