Seven Sioux Falls Cosmos/guests attended the NCF convention in Rapid City, April 29-May 1, 2022. Because of Covid, we haven't met as NCF for two years so it was good to celebrate together. Governor John Duffield and the Rapid City club did a marvelous job of hosting! Our Sioux Falls Noon club submitted nominations for 4 awards and three brought home Federation honors and so will be submitted for consideration at the nternational Convention in Sioux City in July: Cosmo of the Year - Melvina Newman; Member Community Service - Matt Smith; and Patrick J, Hodgins Award - Bill Kubat. Federations officers for the 2022-23 Cosmo year are Governor, Melvina Newman and Governor-Elect, Ludene McLeod.

Distinguished Service Awards Banquet 2021

On October 28, 2021 at The Country Club of Sioux Falls, we recognized two DSA recipients since due to Covid, we were unable to hold a banquet last year. Our recipients: for 2020, Jim Clark and for 2021, Bob Thimjon!




Resent Club Activities
Paws Saving Lives

For easy understanding and branding purposes, the "Smooch a Pooch" program is now known as the "Paws Saving Lives" program.  This program is being led by CI's Rick Swansboro from Rockford, Illinois.

A Message from our President

Bill Kubat



Welcome to the website for the Sioux Falls Cosmopolitan Club - “the club that fights diabetes”!  Our club currently meets for lunch the first 4 Mondays of each month at 11:45 A.M. until 1:00 P.M. at The South Dakota Military Heritage Alliance (1600 W. Russell St). Every week we have civic leaders, business leaders and other community programs come and visit with us about topics that are in the news or important to our club. At lunch we get to catch up with friends, brag about good things happening in our lives and have some good fun.  


Last year our club contributed nearly $31,000 to a range of community causes with a special focus on the education and treatment of diabetes and research to find a cure.


 We are involved in many events, charities and fundraisers to support our community, some of which include:




THE SWEETEST DAY OF GOLF (last year alone we raised over $20,000 to support scholarships for Camp Gilbert, an all diabetic camp for children with diabetes)






I invite you to join our cause to fight diabetes, have lunch, meet some new people, learn something new about what is going on in our community and have a little fun.
