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 hope everyone’s ready for the upcoming winter months!
Big thanks to the campers that held a Trunk-or-Treat night. And a big thanks to all of the volunteers who helped with the Trunk-or-Treat/Haunted Hayride/Monsters in the Field event. A lot of effort went into scaring the kids! Thanks to Dee, the lodge looked goulish.
Speaking of the park, we will be opening the lodge a few days a week. Watch the Facebook calendar as things change rapidly.
Also, for all you campers that enjoy the park all year long and members that frequent our park, we have a park clean-up on November 5th. Please come out and help with your park.
Thank you to the women’s auxiliary, and Pat and Lynn’s crew, for the Friday fish fry. The fish fry’s will continue through the winter.
If everyone remembers Frosty’s Pub... stay tuned! There will be another surprise coming!
As always, thank you to all staff and volunteers!
Jay Coffman, President
