Adoptive family:  Zonta Club of Missoula

My story: The first horse carved by Chuck Kaparich, Zonta is a traditional carousel horse whose carved embellishments - a corncob and sunflower - are tributes to Chuck’s wife, Beth, who grew up in Kansas. Zonta is a national organization of professional women; its Missoula chapter was chartered in 1961. Dwindling membership and a wish to organize more on a local level has prompted members to disband the formal group, but some still meet for social, educational and professional gatherings.
