We’re Celebrating 60 Years!
Sixty years ago, the Cheyenne Club received its charter from Zonta International. In October 1956, Helen Cobb was the group’s first president.
Over the years, Zonta Club of Cheyenne has raised funds to help numerous local organizations dealing with women’s issues, provided scholarships for high school and college women and helped sponsor Zonta International projects.
Come join us on Nov. 10 to celebrate the anniversary! Stay tuned for more information.
