They are medical professionals, engineers, educators, business and civic leaders, role models, mentors, activists, and volunteers who work toward a common vision by engaging like-minded organizations and individuals for partnership. Links members contribute over 6000 documented hours of community service annually – strengthening our community through friendship and service.


We offer outstanding programming through five facets which include Services to Youth, The Arts, National Trends and Services, International Trends and Services and Health and Human Services.
