The Erie County Chapter has a rich history which began with its chartering on October 3, 1987 as the 63rd Chapter of the Eastern Area and the 222nd Chapter of The Links, Incorporated. Link Carolyn H. Allen, Link Pauline M. Clay, Link Shirley L. Courton, Link Eunice D. Jackson, Link Hortense B. Nash, Link Rose H. Sconiers, Link Pamela Seay, Link Mildred Stallings, and Link Lisa T. Yokley organized the Erie County Chapter of twenty-five dedicated and committed women under the dynamic leadership of the founding president, Link Eunice D. Jackson. The site of the Chartering was the Sheraton East Hotel on Walden Avenue in Cheektowaga, New York. The Erie County Chapter of The Links, Incorporated has continued through the years to serve and impact on the health, education and welfare of this area through love, attention, volunteerism, education, contributions to charities and unwavering dedication and commitment. Yes, we have changed many lives in Erie County.
