Hilton Head (SC) Chapter of
The Links, Incorporated
The 284th Chapter of The Links, Incorporated
... With Friendship At Our Core
Happy Friendship Month!
The Hilton Head (SC) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated once again executed another successful chapter business meeting! Much was accomplished as they continue to plan and perfect service events for the coming year. Still exhibiting the friendship spirit that came out of the August Retreat, some sisters brought in their personal beverage mugs that were gifts from the Membership Committee (actually hand-made by Chanda Medlock)!.
The Hilton Head (SC) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated partnered with the "Pink Out" team at Central Oak Grove Missionary Baptist Church on Hilton Head Island to address the disparities between breast cancer outcomes in our community versus other groups. Guests were encouraged to conduct monthly self exams and get annual mammograms. There was live music, food donations from local community businesses, representatives from Beaufort Memorial Hospital, and special recognition was given to breast cancer survivors. A wave of various shades of pink could be seen throughout the room, even being worn by the men and children.
The Hilton Head (SC) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated met on a Hilton Head beach and had a wonderful time ... walking for a healthy heart, brain, and living! Family, friends, and other sister chapters joined us making the event even more memorable.
The Hilton Head (SC) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated celebrated HBCU Month by wearing school tee shirts and other wearables featuring Historically Black Colleges and Universities. We are a chapter not only proud of our personal links to HBCUs but we also recognize other notables within our communities who have graduated from HBCUs, e.g., Oprah Winfrey (Tennessee State University), the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (Morehouse College), astronaut Dr. Ronald McNair (North Carolina A&T University), inventor Lonnie Johnson (Tuskegee University), and Vice President Kamala Harris (Howard University).
