Zonta Club of Maryborough displays orange flowers representing those who sought services at shelter

zonta-club-of-maryboroughThe Zonta Club of Maryborough, District 22 has increased public awareness and improved their community footprint through a display of orange paper flowers in their town’s Market Day. Each flower represents a woman or child that has sought the services of the Club’s local women’s shelter.

The orange ladies (Zollies) were placed in high traffic businesses for the 16 Days of Activism. Each business has had their photograph shared through social media showing their “pledge” against violence towards women and girls. The Club supported the local police in a White Ribbon event as well as hosting a barbecue at a local hardware warehouse. At these events, the Club promoted the 16 Days of Activism campaign and gained much needed support, building on the “active bystander” role of all in the community.
