Lindi Quinn, current President of the Zonta Club of the Coos Bay Area, has been a Zontian since 1998. Advocating for women through various organizations, she concentrates her community service efforts on promoting access to education and reproductive health services. Lindi has served on multiple boards including the Zonta Club Board, Coos Bay Area Zonta Service Foundation, Waterfall Health Center, Coos Country Friends of Public Health and, prior to her retirement from the field of medical sonography, she served on the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography national board as their member elected treasurer. In 2012 Lindi was the recipient of the John Whitty Award for Excellence which recognizes individuals dedicated to improving the health and the well-being of our community.

    “Making the World a Better Place” is a very idealistic goal and, at times, seems ever more challenging. Yet doing nothing has never been an option for the members of Zonta. Founded in October of 1953 the Coos Bay Club grew to be the largest club in the entire Zonta International organization at one time. Zonta has always been about doing something to help our community, both locally and globally. Our mission is to empower women through service and advocacy. Education is a fundamental piece of our work. Scholarships, domestic violence awareness, support of local community organizations – the club and our foundation has raised and distributed over $1 million over these last 69 years.

The museum is limited to 40 participants in-person so please pre-register as soon as possible so that we can plan accordingly.
