Zonta Club of Botany

Mr MARK COURE (Oatley)

—Speaker, I rise today to acknowledge the Zonta Club of Botany who had an outstanding year in 2020. The organisation does a tremendous job at empowering women through service and advocacy throughout the St George area and I believe this is truly important. I would firstly like to recognise the incoming executive led by President, Ann Salle who I know will continue the great legacy of Robyn Fague in years to come. The team includes:

Vice-President, Thana Akkari

Treasurer/Public Officer, Sue Smith

Secretary, Marilyn Lowder

Board members, Judy Bendl, Pam Davidson, Sue Lowe and Bronlyn Schoer.

I also honour retiring board members, Robyn Fague, Amanda Gibson and Elaine Brus and thank them for all of their hard work over a number of years and for their efforts in helping grow the organisation. Despite being unable to hold many service and fundraiser activities last year, I know the committee has big plans for 2021 and I wish them all the best for the year ahead.
