The Chattanooga Chapter proudly congratulates and welcomes our newest links to our chain of friendship: Charita Barrow and Dr. Rashida Hudson! Link Charita and Link Rashida were inducted on the morning of June 6th at a chapter meeting held at the Embassy Suites-Chattanooga. They celebrated later that evening with Links and Connecting Links during a dinner dance event at the exclusive Walden Club in Downtown Chattanooga.
Aside from joining The Links together, Charita and Rashida share another common bond — they are both daughters of Links! Charita is the daughter of Link Mary Barrow. Rashida is the daughter of Link Joy Hudson. Both mothers, active members of the Chattanooga Chapter, made their daughter's day by pinning them with ceremonial white roses.
