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.


Spring is upon us and I would like to thank all that came out for the park clean-up.

Also thank you to everyone that made our annual Easter Egg Hunt a HUGE success. The children sure love the activities we have here for them.

If you have not seen the new bar stools at Sandy Hollow come on down. The stools are absolutely amazing.

Woodcutting for our Pig Roast will be on May 13th at 8 a.m.

Camping season is here, get your annual camping pass!

Memorial Day we will be open at the Lodge for our kick off to summer, come enjoy your park!
