An opportunity for the theatrically inclined!

A musical drama in two acts will be given Saturday and Sunday, March 23 and 24, 2024.  This historical drama is one of the events celebrating 150 years since ancestors came to the U.S. in 1874.

About Us

Centennial Memorial

The Swiss Mennonite Cultural and Historical Association (SMCHA) is a nonprofit organization comprising descendants of immigrant Mennonites who came to the USA in the 1870s from what is now the Ukraine. Their ancestors originated in Switzerland passing through many countries in Europe including France, Germany, Austria and Poland on their way to the Ukraine.

Major purposes of the SMCHA are to educate descendants of the Swiss Mennonites on the origin and culture of this group through various cultural events, research activities, maintenance of historic places, etc. There are several thousand of such descendants, many of them located in central Kansas, South Dakota, and other mid-western states.
