The SM&SF Club was established in 1898 as the Swedish Music & Sick Fraternity. At that time, Swedish singing societies were popular in the Midwest, with singing competitions being held throughout the year. The early Swedish immigrants were also a strong ethnic group that took care of each other, both physically and financially, during times of illness and death.

Today, the SM&SF Club is a non-profit social club with membership that exceeds 600 members. It still maintains an old tradition of caring for the community by its annual “Kick-In for Cancer” fundraisers that have raised over $30,000 a year to benefit the local hospital’s oncology departments and our local hospice care providers.

Hi All,

Hope everyone is doing well. October definitely had some “up’s & downs”. On the upside, club participation and membership continues to grow. We had great turn-out for the Chili Dump and the Halloween Trunk-or-Treat. It was a good month in that respect. On the downside, CoVid has really hit home for the club and our members. As we continue to navigate through this, I want to encourage everyone to be safe and follow the guidelines set forth by the CDC.

Don’t forget—park clean-up is November 14th, and any/all help is appreciated. We have a beautiful park that has really helped the club to continue to function through uncertain times – let's take a day to clean it up and take care of it.

Stay safe!



Boyce Wallin, President
