Magnolia Chapter Gold Star Wives of America

East Ridge, Tennessee

The Magnolia Chapter was organized in 2007 with barely enough members to fill the officer’s positions. Our charter was signed on May 7, 2007 and presented to our chapter in August, 2007 at the installation of officer. We have grown to an active chapter with 43 members. Our members receive a monthly newsletter.

We are located along the I-75, I-24, and I-59 interstate system which merge and passes through Chattanooga, Tennessee This chapter serves three states with members in Tennessee Georgia, and Alabama. We are active in local veteran’s programs, VA hospitals, clinics and veterans’ homes, community activities honoring active duty military, Chattanooga National cemetery and the Chattanooga Area Food Bank. We are in partnership with the Department of Defense in locating Vietnam widows to present them with a special certificate in commemoration of the 50thanniversary of the Vietnam War. Our chapter has received a commemorative flag and a proclamation from the President of the United States for this participation. This program will continue through 2025.
