The inception of the Buckhead/Cascade City Chapter (GA) of The Links, Incorporated began on April 24, 1995. Link Theopia Johnson Tate, under the auspices and direction of Link Jo Ahn Brown-Nash, Chapter Establishment Officer and National Vice President, served as liaison to the National Office. The 39 charter members were women in the political arena, judges, doctoral recipients, physicians, registered nurses, attorneys, entrepreneurs, volunteers, curators, state and federal government personnel, cultural enthusiasts, community activists and homemakers. This diverse membership led to the establishment of a dynamic chapter created and chartered by National President Link Patricia Russell-McCloud, National Vice President Link Jo Ahn Brown-Nash and Ninth Past President Link Dolly Adams.
The mission of the Buckhead/Cascade City Chapter is to provide major leadership in the community and to serve as role models in our ever expanding positive experiences as a service organization locally, regionally and nationally. Our vision is to be committed to excellence in our prioritized, educational, civic and intercultural activities with the visualization that it is possible to enrich the lives of members of the larger community. This is accomplished through strategic coordination of five major facets of Linkdom namely: The Arts, Services to Youth, Health and Human Services, National Trends and Services and International Trends and Services. The programmatic thrust and promotion thereof in the communities we service through cultural activities, education, wellness (health) programs, chapter contributions, is shared and perpetuated by all 81 members of our chapter as we pursue our “Linkages Toward The Possible.”
