Knoxville Chapter

The Knoxville Chapter was organized April 12, 1954 by organizing regent, Mrs. James H. Burke. The chapter celebrated 65 wonderful years in 2019.  We meet on the 4th Wednesday in October, January, March and May at 10:30 a.m. at Fox Den Country Club.

We are a patriotic, historical and educational society. Some of our yearly activities include awarding medals, certificates and donations to JROTC cadets at two local high schools and to an Army and Air Force ROTC cadet at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and by supporting our local USO with snack care packages. Our package in 2019 was over 16 lbs. of “goodies”.

During the three-year term of our current national president our chapter has supported her project by purchasing copies of a book, “Colonial Klaus in Thomas Jefferson’s House”. The chapter has donated 3 copies of this book to the local library system and members and friends have purchased copies for their personal use.
