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,

Welcome to Spring! There are many things happening around the Club!

At the park, the decision was made to have the barn taken down by the end of June. Volunteers are needed for this huge undertaking. Please see any board member for information.

The lodge will be getting a new roof soon.

Remember, camping is in full swing. Don’t forget to get your camping pass to take advantage of your park.

Family Picnic — June 13th

Fireworks — June 26th

Kick in Big Event —  July 18th (Still looking for donations and volunteers—volunteer book is at the Sandy Hollow Bar)

Hope to see everyone at these events!
