History of The West Palm Beach Chapter
In the fall of 1968, Ella S. Clayton suggested to some of her friends that The Links, Incorporated program was needed in the West Palm Beach Area. And so it was the fourteen social and civic-minded women, enchanted by the ideals of the national organization, soon met at the home of Italia S. Walker. With optimism, enthusiasm and the guidance of Link Southern Area Director Maud K. Reid, they began preliminary plans for the establishment of the West Palm Beach Chapter.
On Saturday, February 8, 1969, the West Palm Beach Chapter was chartered and fourteen members were inducted, at the home of Clifton G. and Hisetta S. Dyson, 801 3rd Street, West Palm Beach. Link Lillie W. Fannin, Greater Miami Chapter President, assisted Link Reid with the chapter chartering and membership induction ceremonies. The Greater Miami Chapter was the sponsoring chapter.
