“We have much to celebrate on International Women’s Day and today, some of us enjoyed a lovely lunch hosted by the Zonta Club of Caboolture at the North Leagues and Services Club at Kallangur. These amazing women support with their fundraising efforts, a number of different local organisations, including ourselves.
We have never forgotten 15 years ago the purchase of our original boat, “Spirit of Bribie”, by Zonta and another donation a few years later, which helped us acquire our ten-seater, “Little Spirit”. We look forward to supporting them again, as in past years, and in the future, as they did us. Thank you, Zonta,” Leonie Dyer
Two of us attended the IWD Breakfast at Pacific Harbour with the Bribie VIEW Club.
A hearty breakfast was followed by an inspiring guest speaker, who traced her steps in life’s journey. She, who had little parental encouragement for education, and yet, sustained by her supportive husband, studied for her HSC as a young mother.
Subsequent to tragically becoming a widow, she harnessed her fears and emotions and focussed energetically on continuing to mentor others in her role as an ordained Anglican minister, whilst lecturing in theology and teaching. What a remarkable woman! One who never stopped dreaming, and who exemplifies hard work, dedication, resilience, and wisdom.
As Bribie Dragons, we always welcome Survivors of Breast Cancer, their supporters and friends who wish to enjoy the uplifting experience and exercise of dragon boating, in an inclusive environment. For further information, contact Maree at 0405550969
