History of the Brunswick Chapter

The late Mrs. Leo Harris, a former school teacher, worked untiringly for nearly two  years to bring a chapter of The Links, Incorporated to the Brunswick area.  When her dream became a reality, she summoned eleven other women in the community who she thought might be interested in becoming Links.  In compliance with the National Headquarters’ Chapter Establishment requirements, the local group was sponsored by the Savannah Chapter of The Links, Incorporated.

The Brunswick Chapter of The Links, Incorporated was duly chartered and officers installed by the Area Director, Link Maude Reid of Miami, Florida, on December 10, 1966, at the Carriage Inn, Jekyll Island, Georgia.  The twelve Charter Members are Lila Brown, Orrie Bryant, Wilma Castelio, Virginia Dent, Ethel Griffin, Leo Harris, Gertrude Holmes, Lelner Parham, Lula Robinson, Josephine Wilkes, Birdie Williams, and Ruth Williams.  The original officers of the Brunswick chapter were Links Leo Harris, President; Ruth Williams, Vice President; Virginia Dent, Secretary; and Lila Brown, Treasurer.

Throughout its forty seven years of existence, new program initiatives have been implemented to increase the awareness of cultural and educational possibilities within the community.

Locally, we continue to support many organizations and community activities with monetary contributions, and /or volunteer services.

The Links Incorporated has sponsored two successful “Men of Distinction” programs which highlighted distinguished men in Camden, Glynn, and McIntosh counties.

Currently our chapter has 24 active members.
