The Ohio Valley chapters organizational meeting was 21 Sep 1988 at Ft Campbell, Ky with 19 members attending. Our SMART charter was issued on 23rd of September, 1988. We are one of (if not) the oldest chapters in the North Central region. We are unique in that we hold most of our musters jointly with our South Central region neighbors, the Rocky Tops Chapter. Our chapters take turns hosting musters & sharing the cost. We try for several joint chapter musters per year & also attend the South Central & North Central regionals as well as the SMART National muster each year.
At our musters, you will find lively pinochle, hand & foot card games, Crafters finishing up projects & PLEASE, don't forget the food. We think we have some of the best cooks in SMART. We have great breakfasts, pot lucks, cookouts, eatouts & we try to have at least one group tour to somewhere special in the area.
We support the Wounded Warriors project at Ft Campbell and the Quilts of Valor foundation at the chapter level as well as individually.
We are currently trying to expand our chapter membership to the North (eastern Indiana & southern Ohio) & more of Kentucky. We feel that there is a gap in our coverage that we want to close.
ALL SMART members as well as prospective members & guest are welcome to any of our musters. Chapter membership is free for the 1st year. Our contact numbers are on this site so let us know if you are interested in attending. I am absolutely certain that you will get more out of your SMART membership when you join a chapter so Y'ALL COME, YOU HEAR!
