History

The Zonta Club of Arlington County, Virginia   was the first Zonta club to be formed in the state of Virginia. It was chartered on May 27, 1954 with 27 charter members. The early accomplishments of the club included furnishing a room in the National Orthopedic Center, and support of Salvation Army activities in Arlington.  In 1975, the club established an Oral History program for Arlington County for which it was granted official recognition by the Arlington County Bicentennial Commission. In that same year the club established a scholarship in Dietary Technology at Northern Virginia Community College.  This nursing scholarship continues today.  We continue to support Arlington Area Community activities through volunteer services and donations.  We support the mission of Zonta International of empowering women through service and improving the status of women.  The mission of the club is to advance the status of women through local and international service projects and advocacy.  Mrs Charlotte Floyd carries the Virginia State Flag at the District Conference
