professional women which focuses of women's issues. Throughout the
history of Lincolnís Zonta Club the annual turkey dinner has been a
staple to Lincolnís community wide activities and is a major
fundraiser for the club. Profits from the turkey dinner are used to
fund local scholarships and service projects, and in recent years
have ranged from $4,000 to over $5,000. An estimated $60,000 in
local scholarships has been given out by the Zonta Club of Lincoln
over the years.
