LETTER: Quota back in Alice


Sir – Quota International is looking to re-establish the once vibrant Quota Club in Alice Springs.
Quotarians from Townsville and Whitsunday will be in Alice on Saturday and Sunday, September 29 and 30, to meet with past members and any interested new members.
The club in Alice Springs folded in 2007. Since then the international organisation has changed its structure and bylaws and has been recruiting members, including Generation X & Y, who have found it to be a much more flexible group.
Founded in 1919 as the first international service organisation for women, Quota today has members in clubs throughout North America, South America, the Caribbean, the South Pacific, Southeast Asia, and Europe.
Its motto, “We Share,” leads members to help and encourage others, while developing friendships and promoting international understanding. Quota is known especially for its service to disadvantaged women and children and to people who are deaf, hard of hearing, and speech-impaired.
Anyone who would like to connect with a group of dynamic, caring and fun-loving people, who live for challenges, and are willing to tackle something new, should come along on Saturday, September 29 at 3pm at the Royal Flying Doctor Service Cafe on Stuart Terrace, near Alice Springs Hospital precinct. If you can’t make it on Saturday call me on 0419 658837 to register your interest or Cheryl North 0410 225004 or 0889 522072.
Jeanette Gray
Past District Governor
