“Girls Wanna Have Fun” and Show They Know How To



The Zonta Club of Lamar hosted their second annual “Girls Wanna Have Fun” event at the Lamar Elks Lodge, Saturday, March 19th.  Local band JUDI played to a packed house attired in woman’s garb during their first set, and thankfully, in jeans for the rest of the evening.  No offense, but Jay, you’re a very unconvincing woman.

Several hundred attendees of all ages enjoyed the music, vendor bargains, snacks of all kinds which, included a chocolate fountain as well as beverages through the evening. One focal point of the night was the fashion show, displaying attire available from eight local vendors.

According to coordinators Vickie Bond and Karen Ketcham, the proceeds from admission and vendor fees will be used to Zonta’s scholarship programs for local students. Eighteen vendors signed up to display items ranging from cosmetics, jewelry and clothing accessories and home oriented decorations.  A silent auction of donated items also contributed to the funds raised by the event.

Aside from being a general fun event, the night also provides a focus on Zonta’s beneficial activities around the world and in Lamar. Various scholarships are awarded by the Zonta organization and are funded by events such as the annual Rose Day which was held in early March.
