For over three quarters of a century, The Daughters of the British Empire in the U.S.A. has been a common bond for women of British heritage living in America. Members, joining together in fellowship, contribute significantly to the good of their local communities and support the four retirement homes for men and women established by the DBE.
The DBE in Tennessee is a part of the Southern District.
Members of the Centre Court Chapter and the Wimbledon Chapter are primarily from West Knoxville and the Farragut area.
Carrying on the tradition of "not ourselves, but the cause", the DBE chapters throughout the United States support one of four retirement homes. Fundraising Events are held by the chapters throughout the year with the proceeds going to support the home within their district.
Mountbatten House is built along the lines of an English country home and is located in Highlands, near Houston, Texas. The Southern Home was opened in 1983.
In addition to the monthly teas, Centre Court and Wimbledon gather to raise funds for the Mountbatten House, to celebrate holidays, and to enjoy one another's company.
