We are a Club of Swiss people and friends of Switzerland in the greater Lake Tahoe/Reno area of the Sierra Nevada.  Founded in 1963  we organize many events throughout the year for both families and adults of Swiss heritage to get together and enjoy themselves.

President's Message:

I would like to extend a special thank-you to all the people who have contributed to the club's strength over all the years from 1964 to 2018. The journey has been long and sometimes difficult. In the process of the past five decades, our events have seen numerous locations from Donner Lake to Squaw Valley. Our present locale in Truckee is the result of several years of hard work on the part of our club officers and members. Their efforts and successes are to be commended.
As Swiss Americans we must strive to keep our traditions alive. Wrestling, Steinstossen, Music, Jass, and our languages are the most obvious customs, but let us not forget the support, cooperation, and fellowship between the various clubs and individuals. All these aspects are part of our past heritage and the future of the Swiss culture.
So in this light, please make a commitment to attend club functions and events, and whenever possible, make an effort to actively participate.
