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.
Thank you to all involved with the annual car show. It was a beautiful day and a great turn-out. Most importantly, we raised a large amount of money to send to the Shriners Children's Hospital.
Thank you to all who were involved with the Kick In for Cancer Golf Outing. Another great event that raised money for Kick In. We had a very successful year with all of our Kick In For Cancer events.
My applause goes out to each one of you that have made this happen. Helping others is what this club was made for, and I hope everyone is proud to keep that tradition going.
Labor Day weekend is approaching and will be a busy weekend at the park. Hope to see everyone there for the Pig Roast!
