The Minneapolis Chapter is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We are part of the North Central Region of Gold Star Wives of America. Our chapter is one of the oldest ones in the organization having been in existence since 1946. Our members come from all around the St Paul and Minneapolis metropolitan area. We actually have one original member of the chapter still living, but she lives in another state where she has relatives.


Meetings are held at 7 PM the first Monday of the month from October to June except for January. Our winters can be very unpredictable so we choose not to meet during the worst part of our winter season. We currently meet at a member’s home and finish the meeting with dessert and conversation.

We volunteer at our local VA hospital, the Fort Snelling Veterans Administration Medical Center, providing prize money and treats for Adult Day Care and video dog races. Our chapter has done this for many years and expect to continue as long as we are able. Some of the members also participate in the Memorial Day Program at Fort Snelling National Cemetery.
