About Us

We are an active group of Swiss, Swiss descendants and friends of Switzerland. The purpose of our organization is to cultivate friendly Swiss-American relations, maintain the Swiss heritage and provide a forum for cultural exchange and social gatherings.

Membership to the club is open to Swiss citizens and others who manifest their interest in Switzerland, its heritage and culture.

We invite you to browse our list of events on the right and fill out our membership application form.  Included in our membership fee are our very popular picnics which are held at the Oscar Scherer State Park in Osprey.  Should you have any question about our club or need additional information, please send us an e-mail.  It would be our pleasure to welcome you, as a new member or as a guest, at a future event.
