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.
Hope everyone is ready for the summer!
Would like to thank all the volunteers for helping with the family picnic and the Woman's Auxiliary for the Father's Day Breakfast.
As you can see, the barn is finally coming down. Thank you to the volunteers that worked on this project. Dan Brennan, and his crew, will take it from here! See Dan if you're interested in barn wood.
