Sketch of Moccasin Bend by Mrs. Penny Cagle Grant
The Moccasin Bend Chapter was organized on November 21, 1953, at Chattanooga,
Tennessee. It was named for the historical peninsula, in the shape of a
moccasin, formed by the Tennessee River as it winds through the Chattanooga
area. Moccasin Bend is especially beautiful when viewed from the mountains above
Mrs. Irene Stoops Garrison was the organizing regent and held the first
meeting in her home with twelve ladies in attendance. To accommodate
professional women, the chapter meetings were held at night. Later the group
changed the meeting times to the morning of either the second Wednesday or the
second Saturday of each month, September through June. Today, all chapter
meetings are held on second Saturdays, except for the June meeting, which is on
Wednesday closest to Flag Day.
Moccasin Bend Chapter members are active participants in, and
contributors to, DAR projects and activities at local, district, state, and
national levels. They are enthusiastic supporters of the Society.
