It is with deep sadness that the Niagara Falls (NY) Chapter, The Links, Incorporated shares the loss of our beloved Platinum Link Carrie Mitchell. Link Carrie was inducted into the Chapter in 1970. She was a dedicated member from the moment of her induction, having served on many committees and served in many positions.
She exemplified the tenets of our National Pledge and was an example of true Friendship to the members of this chapter and others. Her words of encouragement that she would always say is:
Give to the World, the best you can, and it will come back to you.
We are celebrating 73 years of Friendship and Service
