A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Greetings and welcome to the official website of the Penn Towne Chapter of The Links, Incorporated. Our chapter was chartered in Philadelphia on September 6, 1975 by twenty-five dynamic friends: Ruth Bridges, Annie Clarke, Constance Clayton, Carolyn Hall, Sylvia Horn, Annette Miller, Vivien Vaughters, Ethel Allen, Reba Bowie, Naomi Hamilton, Marjorie Farmer, Ora Bundy, Jacqueline Evans, Dorothy Granger, Andrea Gray, Mabel Green, Helen Hagan, Doris Harris, Gwendolyn Hewlett, Rae Minter, Ruth Moses, Nettie Taylor, C. DeLores Tucker, Sharon Watson, and Mabel Wilson. The chapter was organized by Link Toni Brazington, a member of the Philadelphia Chapter.
As the newly re-elected President of the Penn Towne Chapter, I join with our Executive Board, Facet and Committee Chairs in expressing our excitement and enthusiasm in being charged with leading this dynamic and distinguished sisterhood of women for the next two years.
The Penn Towne Chapter is known for its dynamic programming, fundraising acumen, and its dedication to improving opportunities for women and youth. Our activism spans across the Philadelphia region, however, we are excited to launch a new comprehensive partnership with Methodist Home Services.
I would be remiss if I failed to speak to the dynamic sisterhood of women that comprise the Penn Towne Chapter who not only share an array of cumulative years in service to the Links Incorporated, but are as diverse with respect to their professional achievements, as they are in their life experiences. A plethora of professions are represented by these captivating and remarkable women.,
We invite you to visit our website often, follow our current and pending programs and most importantly, continue to support us and the worthwhile causes and charitable endeavors that we pursue for the benefit of our community.
Yours in friendship and service,
Penn Towne Chapter of The Links, Incorporated
