The Annual Dinner and Silent Auction on October 28 was a great success. Our club raised over $3,500 to support our mission. There were so many great auction items and a wonderful dinner served by Dutch's Daughters.



Mary Bowman Kruhm and G. Bernard Callan, Jr., discussed their book, "Shutter Dogs & Boot Scrapers," at the Zonta Club of Frederick meeting, Monday, May 13. The book is a guide to the basics of historic buildings in the City of Frederick. Published by the Frederick County Landmarks Foundation (FCLF), it is intended to promote preservation of historic architectural designs of Frederick and increase knowledge and appreciation of these sites and structures.


As the first book on the topic, it focuses on buildings, primarily homes, on E. 2nd St., but also includes the Schifferstadt Architectural Museum. The Museum is believed to be the oldest home in town. It bears a bronze plaque engraved with words designating it as being on the "National Register of Historice Places." It also bears a plaque with an engraved #001 awarded by the FCLF that designates it as a "National Historic Landmark." As readers follow along in the book, they learn that 21 houses on W. 2nd St. in Frederick bear a numbered plaque. Quite an accomplishment as only about 2,500 of over 90,000 buildings and structures listed on the country's "National Register of Historic Places" are recognized as National Historic Landmarks. The book is available at Schifferstadt and other places for only $10 plus tax. All money goes to the FCLF to further their work.

Zonta Club of Frederick, in partnership with Hood College and Heartly House present a free community screening of the award-winning documentary Little Stones.


Little Stones profiles four women, each of whom are contributing a stone to the mosaic of the women’s movement through their art. The film and accompanying education initiative have been designed to raise awareness about global women’s rights issues, and challenges facing women globally. The 60-minute documentary follows Brazilian graffiti artist Panmela Castro, Senegalese rap-singer Sister Fa, Indian dance therapist Sohini Chakraborty, and fashion designer Anna Taylor as they use their art to combat violence against women, sex trafficking, and to empower women and girls globally.


Doors open at 6 p.m., when local community action groups will be available to provide information about the services offered to our community to combat violence against women.

As part of Zonta Club’s efforts to stop violence against women, those attending the screening are asked to consider making a donation by cash or check that evening to Heartly House of Frederick.
