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.

Happy July to All!

As you all know, our annual fireworks show was rescheduled due to the unstable and unpredictable weather. Much discussion was had by the SMSF Board, SMSF Bar Manager, and the pyrotechnician and, after direct contact with the National Weather Service, the painful decision was made to move the show to Labor Day Weekend, September 3, 2022, prior to Sunday's Pig Roast. It should be a great weekend at the park! Please add this to your calendar. We'd love to see you there!

For the upcoming month, don't forget... lots of things happening at the club. Please check the calendar and Facebook for events and details!

As voted on by the members, all new toilets were purchased and were installed at the club and the park. To the volunteers that made it happen... thank you!

Thank you to the Women's Auxiliary, for the Father's Day Breakfast. There was a great turnout!

Thank you to everyone for their continued patience, understanding and support as we navigate fun times and tough decisions.
