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.
I would like to thank Dee and all of the Volunteers for a great Easter Egg Hunt, and to all that helped clean up our park. What an awesome park we have!
Kick-in is in full swing and doing a great job! Current total is approximately $15,000. Be sure to stop by the Club and watch the thermometer rise.
Keep an eye on Facebook, the monitor and the printed calendars for upcoming events. Lots of great things are happening! Special thanks to Deb and Jonna who keep things up to date and fresh.
Remember your Mom's...MOTHER'S DAY is coming up along with a Mother's Day breakfast.
We are honored to be hosting the Association of Clubs Dinner scheduled for later in May.
Thank you to the Women's Auxiliary for the new industrial grill for the park.
Thank you Volunteers and Staff!!
