About Us

We are a Rochester, Washington 501 c 3 organization called Rochester Citizen’s Group (GMRCG).   It is important for us to preserve the Historic Swede Hall property as an inexpensive rental venue for the local  community.

Any local person is eligible to become a member of the Rochester Citizens Group.  While the locally known name for the property is “Swede Hall” you do not need to be of Swedish or Finnish ancestry to become a member of the group.  We meet in the kitchen of Swede Hall (south end of the building) at 7:00 PM on the second Tuesday evening of the month.

Dances are held the first, third and fifth Sundays of each month at Swede Hall.  These dances are from 1:30 to 4:30 in the afternoon with a $8.00 donation.  Live music is by local bands.
