Mount Isa is a real Oasis in the Outback. A thriving cosmopolitan city of 20,000 people situated in the ochre-red Selwyn Ranges on the banks of the Leichardt River, 900 klms west of Townsville and 600 klms south of Karumba, Mount Isa is a busy mining, commercial, industrial and tourism centre that celebrates 80 wonderful years of existence in 2003.
The Zonta Club of Mount Isa Inc. was chartered in September 1993 under the guidance of Mary Magee OAM and Dianne Leggo and has just celebrated 21 great years. The Club presently has 30 members, with a number of charter members still active. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month at the Carpentaria Buffalo Club at 6pm.
Our clubs welcome visitors.
The members of our club have proudly given their time, talents and energy to the community since their respective charter dates, raising funds, negotiating donations and sponsorship and giving “hands on service” to projects assisting women. The club organizes such events as International Women’s Day and the Sponsor’s Tent at the annual Rodeo. We often take our Fairy Floss machine out into public and dispense Fairy Floss and Zonta PR simultaenously. Various women’s shelters in town are supported by our club by ongoing care pack donations with two computers having been donated to Domestic Violence Centre’s in the past two years.
We have a commitment to keeping the Zonta ethos relevant and our members value the fellowship and service that is inclusive with membership in our clubs.
