November is Friendship Month and Founder's Day Celebration

October's "Circle of Friends" was a huge success. Members of the Chapter greeted women from the community who was inspired by a dynamic and inspiring speaker, Karen White, Vice-President of the South Bend Common Council. Everyone left inspired and encouraged.

President Tina Patton and members of The South Bend Area (IN) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated honored our Chapter member who are breast cancer survivors on an October Sunday afternoon with lunch at a local restaurant. A flower corsage  and a greeting card (example shown in the slide presentation) was presented to each of them. The four members are Deb Childs, Janice Hall, Trion Thomas, and Myrtle Wilson. We honor them and offered our love and friendship to each of them.


To celebrate Friendship Month, the South Bend Area (IN) Chapter presented a short program prior to the start of the Chapter meeting. Members were able to show their love for each other and create more bonding together.
