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.



March is here and we have some big events this month. March 6th is our board election—voting will be from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., with results to follow. With that being said, thank you to our 2023 Board of Directors!


We have a great year filled with things we can be proud of. Good luck to all who are running in 2024. I am looking forward to this year with the new board. March 13th we will be swearing in many new members. Hopefully there will be a new bunch of volunteers in the group!


March 23rd is Park Clean-Up. The kids’ Easter Egg Hunt will be held March 30th.
