The Zonta Club of Warren has recognized two local women for making a difference.

The members of the club awarded “Women Who Make a Difference” awards to Jan Graziano and Savannah Zimmerman Casey at their January meeting.

“Each year this award is given to women who go above and beyond volunteering in the Warren County community,” Terry Borger said. “These women were recognized at the January luncheon with a certificate and a donation to their favorite charity.”

“Each has worked tirelessly volunteering in the community giving to others,” Borger said. “Jan is a retired kindergarten teacher from St. Joseph’s School. Since retiring she spends her days sewing. She is an avid member of the Quilters’ Night Out Quilt Guild. One of the guild’s missions is to participate in projects and services to benefit our community. Jan participates enthusiastically in those projects; sewing comfort quilts that were donated to Cancer Center and Kids In Need with the Warren County School District.”

Graziano has also made over 2,000 masks for family, friends, and the community and 3,500 Pocket Prayer Quilts over the past year, Borger said.

When the Quilters were asked to make book bags for Free Books for Kids Town, Graziano made 100, she said.

“Savannah is the current administrative assistant at Warren County Chamber Business and Industry,” Borger said. “Savannah also owns her own technology business and is a first responder.”

“She has volunteered on the planning committee and assists in the running of… Women Are Wonderful,” she said. “She has also participated in Leadership Warren County.”

“Savannah goes above and beyond the scope of her position at WCCBI,” Borger said.

“We are fortunate to have such great leadership in our community who give more than expected,” she said. “Zonta is proud to recognize these two women and honor them for what they do for our community.”
