Membership

Greetings! The Smith Club of Minnesota is one of the largest and most active clubs in the country. With more than 500 alumnae in the state, we are a force!

Oral History Project

The Minnesota Smith Club has now published two volumes in its exciting and unique oral history project, Strong Women Building Strong Communities. A recap of the marvelous launch of the project upon publication of the first volume in 2008 is on the page Project Launch. Book 2 was published in 2012, debuting at our annual meeting on May 6. The project is known throughout the Smith College alumnae world, and many clubs are keen on doing something similar and interested in learning from us.

Smith Day

Smith Day: The Great Exchange will be held on Oct 7, 2017 at 10am at the Walker Art Center. Be sure to wear your Rally Day hat to Smith Day and donate and bring with you one item which can be passed in a diploma-like circle. Talk up the sale with friends, as you can bring as many as you’d like. Please consider volunteering early – we have a ball getting the event ready.
