Members of Quota International of Parkes will once again celebrate the achievements of women and raise awareness of their world-wide struggles for International Women’s Day.
The celebration under this year’s theme #BalanceforBetter will be on Sunday, 10th March at 12 noon at the Parkes Services Club including a fabulous two-course luncheon for just $30 per person.
Entertainment includes Zumba with Nancy Cayo, the beautiful voice of Barbara Newton, and the talent of Hannah Dun, runner-up in the National Busking Championship last year. In keeping with Quota’s ideal of showcasing
the talent and expertise of local women, Helen Magill and Hannah Hawker will inspire with their positive stories.
Professional tennis coach, Helen Magill, has been nominated for many awards, and a particular highlight was winning the Newcombe Medal (2016) for her passion and commitment to tennis. She is an inspiration to young girls and women of all ages, and encourages everyone to be confident, to love what we do and to do the best job we possibly can.
Hannah is a wellness teacher at Parkes High and a previous winner of the Parkes Showgirl title ably representing Parkes and the agricultural community. Hannah credits this experience as life-changing and she continues to strive for excellence in both her personal and professional life.
Tickets are available at Absolutely Hair, 207 Clarinda Street, until 5th March. Make International Women’s Day YOUR day and do what you can to make a positive difference for women.
