About Our Club Events

Smith Day

Eight-six years ago, Smith Day began as a fundraising effort held in the homes of local alums. Over the years, the event has evolved to meet the ever-changing needs of the Club and its members. But its core purpose – celebrating our Smith connection and raising funds to support local Smith students – has remained the same.

Funds raised at Smith Day support PRAXIS summer internships that allow students to gain practical experience in an area of special interest. In addition, funds are added to the Club’s endowed scholarship fund for local Smith students. Over time, the Minnesota fund has grown to an impressive $2 million+!

In 2017, Smith Day reinvented itself yet again with the addition of the awarding of the “Smith College Club of Minnesota Medal”. The award, modeled after the Rally Day awards, honors a regional alumna who has lived a life of distinction. The event continues to be a festive, fundraising gathering with activities, food, conversation and a silent auction.

Annual Meeting

The Club Annual Meeting is held each spring. In addition to socializing, networking, sharing a meal and electing new Club officers, attendees of the Annual Meeting are inspired by a speaker from the College or from our local treasure trove of Smith alumnae.

Club Activities

Throughout the year, the Club hosts a wide variety of events – varying based on the interests of Club members. Prior to COVID-19, we hosted walks around area lakes, gathered for dinners at local restaurants, hosted a salon on the Shakopee Women’s Prison, read and discussed books and more. During the pandemic, we have been able to move many events online via Zoom.
