The new Central Michigan Chapter has been involved in significant events, such as the dedication of the Holland Park Veterans Home Front Memorial in Big Rapids. Meetings include chapter-members giving captivating presentations of the biographies of their patriot(s).

The Central Michigan Chapter received Charter on October 29, 2016 at the Great Lakes District Meeting in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The first official meeting was held November 12, 2016 (see photo below). The Regular/General meetings are typically held at the Cheers Neighborhood Grill in Mount Pleasant, 11:15 a.m., on the 2nd Saturday of months March, May, August, October, and November. The Board of Managers meetings are typically held on the same day as the General Membership meeting, except the location is at the Remus Tavern at 9:00 a.m. The November General Membership meeting is always the chapter’s “Ladies Appreciation Meeting,” and it is the last meeting of the year.
