Atlanta, GA – The 26th Girl Friends Chapter, Incorporated

Who We Are

The members of the Atlanta Chapter were destined to be “Girl Friends”. In 1966, when a group of friends came together to organize a bridge club, they chose the name “Girl Friends.” The friends immediately changed their club’s name to “Les Girls” upon hearing of a national organization known as “The Girl Friends, Incorporated.” This sparked a desire in Les Girls to affiliate with a national group whose main focus is to foster friendship. Soon thereafter, they began implementing plans to officially join that organization. It took years of patience, diligence, perseverance, determination and hard work on our part – as well of that of our sponsoring chapter, Columbus, Ohio – before the dream of becoming a part of The Girl Friends family became a reality. Finally, during the weekend of October 1-3, 1971, in the new spectacular Hyatt Regency Hotel, the flame of Atlanta beamed bright as the 26th Girl Friends chapter was installed, the first in the Deep South.
