Founded on November 9, 1946 by friends, Margaret Roselle Hawkins and Sarah Strickland Scott, the women’s service organization The Links, Incorporated is a group of highly passionate, multinational, multicultural thought leaders and community leaders. Within 30 years, chapters developed across this nation, including throughout South Florida.

Fifty years ago ( Click here to learn about our history ), in February 1969, led by Ella S. Clayton and fourteen intrepid friends, The West Palm Beach (FL) Chapter of the Links Incorporated joined the ranks of these bold, high achieving women who have since contributed more than 1 million documented hours of community service. These community service hours go towards uplifting children, women, families, supporting the arts, and serving the community locally. In alignment with the goals and initiatives of The Links, Incorporated, our members serve others through the implementation of five Program Facets: Services to Youth, National Trends and Services, Health and Human Services, International Trends and Services and the Arts.

Since our inception, we have maintained friendships and established mutually beneficial associations while demonstrating extraordinary commitment to the betterment of humanity. As president and a humble servant in this community, I hope to greet you at one of our community events and our annual White Rose affairs Visit our programs here.
