This is a great community builder! My family has been going here for generations. Smyrna is quite small, but community dinners and events really keep the spirit of the community, and allow people to get to know their neighbors.

The Smyrna Social Club was started in Smyrna, Michigan in 1903 by the Knights of the Maccabee's. The group held regular social events and soon determined that they needed a permanent place for these meetings. The current Maccabee Hall was constructed in 1905. The group held regular meetings, such as quilting bee's. On year the quilting bee fell on St. Patrick's Day. Rather than quilt, they threw a party. And have been doing so the Saturday before St. Patrick's ever since. This event is open to the public! A roast beef dinner is served from noon until two, with all the fixin's, and later in the day roast beef sandwich's and food is still available. The annual euchre tournament takes place and a cash bar is available.
The monies earned at this event, along with the monies from the Summer Celebration and the Fall Festival, all go toward the maintenance and upkeep of the historic hall. The Maccabee Hall is listed on the Michigan Register of Historic Building.
