Laughter Clubs are community-based associations of people where all are welcome. The Bloomington Laughter Club is non-religious, non-political, non-competitive, and a place where you will laugh like you have never laughed before, leaving you refreshed and invigorated. You will do this for no reason at all, except the desire to improve your health and well-being.

Description From website: Building on over 40 years of accident-free firearms education leadership provided by the Sycamore Valley Gun Club, the Sycamore Valley Conservation and Education Foundation was created in response to changing attitudes regarding firearms ownership. Today, the important role played by law-abiding gun owners is less well understood now than at any time in our nation's history. Through our successful acquisition of the Freedom Conservancy property, the Foundation is establishing a world-class shooting sports and firearms safety education facility right here in the heart of Southern Indiana.
