Sound Mind in a Sound Body
From our earliest beginnings, in 1858, the Aurora Turners (a.k.a Turnverein Frisch-Auf) has been a place whose members could meet and share a common goal of friendship and lifestyle within our National motto with equal benefit for the masses and not just a privileged few.
It has always been a place shared by the youth, the parents and the elder generations with activities scheduled to include all ages, male and female.
The diversity of activity is most apparent at the sports complex with a constant flurry of classes for various ages of our youth competing in physical activity of their choice with professional leadership and instruction. In summer months some of the activity shifts to the outdoor sports and our modern facilities make for pleasant family outings during softball, volleyball, soccer and bowling games in our pavilions and playground areas.
The Family Picnic has continued to be an annual favorite as well as monthly Family Breakfast, special dance nights and our Society meetings. On a weekly basis the Friday Fish Fry, membership drawings, bowling leagues continue to entice our members. Not to be forgotten is the daily schedule when the clubroom offers members and guests a place to meet and enjoy food and libation of choice where you are never ashamed to bring your child, sweetheart or grandmother.
This is what Aurora Turners has offered its members for more than 150 consecutive years; thru 8 wars, financial hardship, 6 different locations, good times and some not so well; all a vital part of the legacy of what makes Aurora Turners a special second home to each individual and family with the privilege of a membership.
