September 28, 2019 Commissioner Dr. Barbara Sharief became a proud member of the Fort Lauderdale Chapter of the Links Incorporated.
Who are the Links:
On November 9, 1946, Margaret Rosell Hawkins and Sarah Strickland Scott, two young Philadelphia visionaries, co-founded The Links, Incorporated. They invited seven of their friends to join them in organizing a new type of inter-city club. This organizing meeting of The Links was not a spontaneous action. In 1945, Margaret Rosell Hawkins had conceived the idea of a group of clubs composed of friends along the eastern seaboard and had spent many hours with Sarah Strickland Scott in thinking, planning and discussing the possibilities of such an endeavor.
The Links has a long tradition of engaging in educational, civic and inter-cultural activities in communities we serve.
The members of The Links, Incorporated are influential decision makers, opinion leaders and distinguished achievers.
