The Zonta Club of Tallahassee (ZCT) was chartered in May of 1980, at the Capital City Country Club in a very formal ceremony, which was attended by many Zontians across the state of FL, including Zonta Governor Barbara Dean, as well as Zontians from other states in District 11. The Delray Beach Club was Tallahassee's sponsor. The founding president was Helen Webb, and the startup club had 46 members.

 

ZCT has supported Zonta International (ZI) programs and worked with many local agencies to achieve the objectives of ZI and improve womens' lives.  ZCT recently held a 30 year Anniversary and Celebration at the University Center Club, which was attended by over 100 ZCT members and guests, including 17 of the 29 Past Presidents.
