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.
Summer is officially coming to an end and there's still lots happening here at the club.
I would like to thank Deanna, SMSF Staff and all Volunteers for all that was done to make the Pig Roast weekend a success. It was a great time if you missed it.
The Dark Horse event was a success as well! For everyone that helped with the organizing, thank you! This event is held annually to help our veterans. Our Women's Auxiliary has struck again. Not only did they purchase the new stove at the park, but they have, also, decided to do something special for us at Sandy Hollow. That surprise will be coming in the near future. Thank you to all that made this possible!
Keep an eye on the calendar. There are alot of events that are starting back up again.
October 23 — Trunk or Treat at the Park. Be prepared to be scared! Monsters needed for haunted hayride. See the volunteer book at the bar.
Sunday football is back at the park.
Thank you to all of our volunteers and staff for all you do and for a successful summer.
Looking forward to a great fall!
Jay Coffman, President
