Beautiful May Baskets for Seniors

Thank you to Zonta Volunteers: Annette Knapstein, Nancy McCulley, Katherine Dellenbach, Jody Alston, Sonya Lindquist, Nancy Abraham, Pam Duane and Michele Vosberg 

In a partnership with the West Madison Senior Center and the East Madison/Monona Coalition of the Aging, Zonta of Madison has provided 30 deserving senior women with May Baskets. Our goals were simple, to brighten up their spring and show them how much Zonta women care. On April 22, 2017 nine women gathered to assemble the baskets which included items such as kitchen towels, washcloths, potholders, body wash, lotion, notecards, stamps, silk flowers, and of course, chocolate! This is the second year Zonta has created May Baskets and the Service Committee plans to do them again in 2018.
