Some Successes and Many Opportunities
    The Lincoln Lynx Alumni Association (LLAA) has been vital in sustaining the interest and support of activities connecting long-time friends - the common thread being a graduate of Lincoln High School.
    The LLAA is typical of most volunteer associations in that the time and effort to organize and follow-through reminds me of Pareto's Principle: 80 percent of the effort is done by 20 percent of the members. In our situation, it seems like it could be 90 -10 rule sometimes. This is not a complaint, just a reminder that those who are currently involved need your help in carrying on the many annual activities organized by the officers, chairs, and class representatives.
    As you know, putting together the annual All Class Luncheon is no small task. Gathering articles and editing the Totem II newspaper three times a year is another major accomplishment. Then there is maintaining and updating the alumni database, the screening of applications for scholarships, and updating the association’s website. To make all this work smoothly are the officers who facilitate board meetings, record the business, monitor the funds, and handle the correspondence. (Whoops, I need to mention the efforts of those who help in organizing the engraved paver project in August and the upcoming open house in September.)
    One other key component of this association is the important role of the class representatives who have continual engagement with classmates, providing articles for the Totem II, helping to keep the database current, and participating in Board meetings.
    So, it seems that around 50 alumni (officers, chairs, and class representatives) keep our Association healthy and active. (Pretty good, considering there are around 10,000 living alumni.)
    While we can be proud of the many annual activities, as well those connected with the reopening of our school, we need to look to the future and how we can continue to be a vibrant and useful association to our alumni. As President, I see the future as both exciting and challenging, particularly with a lapse of almost 40 years of no graduating students who would have been potential alumni members. With a growing percentage of the alumni who graduated in the 40s and 50s, the alumni of the 60s and 70s need to step forward and take on leadership roles and create new annual activities that sustain interest and membership.
    I'd like to take the opportunity to encourage you to come to the LLAA Board meetings, volunteer to help with the Annual Luncheon, serve as a Class Representative, or consider putting your name on the ballot to serve as an officer.
    For me, it has been a great way to renew friendships, become involved in some exciting and rewarding alumni activities (the engraving project, the Alumni Open House, and help plan and chair the monthly board meetings). It has been an honor to serve as your alumni association President, but it is time for someone (maybe you) to step forward and volunteer your talents and skills in helping to further the goals of our alumni association.
    If you are interested in volunteering in any of the activities, from the All Class Luncheon, serving on a committee, or being an officer, please contact me and I'll make sure to connect you with the right person.
Sincerely,
    Jack (jmckay@lincolnlaa.org, 360-821-9877)
