The Zonta Club of Burbank is celebrating International Women’s Day and Zonta Rose Day, on March 8, 2016 at 11:00 a.m., by planting yellow rose bushes at the Headquarters of the Burbank Board of Realtors, 2006 W. Magnolia Blvd., Burbank, CA. The yellow rose is the traditional symbol of Zonta International.
For Zontians, Yellow Rose Day is a day to reflect on the achievements of the past year and prepare for the challenges ahead to advance the status of women worldwide. The United Nations established International Women Day in 1977 to celebrate the rights of women and international peace. Both events are celebrated internationally on March 8 every year.
