LBDC Has Arrived in Atlanta!

LBDC has just launched a new chapter in Atlanta!

LaTonya Hubbard and I had our first Meet & Greet for the Atlanta chapter and we are so excited!  The event was a luncheon @ Copeland's of New Orleans in Atlanta, GA and there were 9 of us in attendance. I opened the meeting with an introduction of myself and of LBDC, and then we all introduced ourselves and told why we joined this group. It was really interesting to learn the diversity of our group. We had a couple of ladies who were both originally from Brooklyn, NY, we met women with children and without, a few pet lovers and several ladies looking for new friendships and adventures. We played an ice breaker game where they had to unscramble words that were related to LBDC and Sherise Garland won the prize.

A detailed list of upcoming event ideas and suggestions were given and the ladies were especially excited about horseback riding, a glamping weekend in a cabin, spa days, movie nights and several others fun and out of the box ideas such as learning to ride a motorcycle and group swimming lessons.

LBDC Atlanta will be planning a bus trip to the Seabreeze Jazz Festival in Panama City Beach, FL April 24-27 and we would like to invite additional LBDC chapters to join us! Email for more information.

We enjoyed talking and getting to know each other during our meet and greet, phone numbers were exchanged among members and bonding certainly took place.  LaTonya compared LBDC to the sisterhood found in a sorority, Brittany stated that she had never belonged to a sorority but she liked the bond she instantly felt from being a member. Several of the ladies commented on what a wonderful time we had and what a pleasure it was meeting everyone.

We can hardly wait for our next event!
