November is Friendship Month

New Orleans Links are bowled over with friendship at Rock N’ Bowl.

It was through friendship that The Links, Incorporated was established. Its founding members, Margaret Hawkins and Sarah Scott, were friends and, on November 9, 1946, they invited seven of their friends to join them in organizing a new type of inter-city club. They envisioned an organization that would respond to the needs and aspirations of Black women in ways that existing clubs did not. It was their intent that the club would have a threefold aim — civic, educational, and cultural. Based on these aims, the club would implement programs, which its founders hoped would foster cultural appreciation through the arts; develop richer inter-group relations; and help women who participated to understand and accept their social and civic responsibilities.

November is Friendship month – a time to reflect, appreciate, celebrate and strengthen the bonds of friendship.
