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 this finds everyone well. The Park Clean-Up was a great success. Approximately 15 members came out, and that is not counting the flooring crew that was inside the lodge installing new tile. I want to say “thank you” to our members that volunteered!!

Speaking of tile, the Women’s Auxiliary has graciously presented us with a check to pay for the tile upgrade at the lodge. The board and auxiliary are working together and moving the club in a positive direction. It’s great to see this kind of support and what we can accomplish together. A big “thank you” to Pat Johnson and the Auxiliary! We should all be extremely proud of the recent and ongoing improvements as it speaks to our success as a club in what have been some pretty trying times.

Hope to see you all at the club soon!


Boyce Wallin, President
