Jack McKay ‘57
Dear Alums,
Seems like we have a lot of things going on in preparation for the grand reopening of our high
school. But first, there is a relatively small number of great people who serve as volunteers to help make
your Alumni Association one of the best. From publishing the Totem II to preparing the Alumni Open
House, these volunteers make things happen. Think about joining this wonderful group. You’ll meet some
new friends and get reacquainted with some of your old ones.
Building Renovation: Jerry Bacon ('57), our liaison with the contraction manager, Steve Moore,
assures us that the project is progressing in a timely manner and within budget. The new Lincoln High
School will be one of most modern. It will include state-of-the-art instructional practices and supporting
technology.
Annual All Class Luncheon: Linda Ungar Strock, (’62), is co-chairing the luncheon with Barbara
Smith Repanich ('67). It is hosted this year by the Class of 1963 and Suzanne Santwire Lundquist (’63)
is their organizer. The luncheon is set for Saturday, June 8, 2019 at the Nile Shrine Center. You can
register on-line at our website at www.lincolnhighlynx.org under Events. The luncheon committee is looking
for Silent Auction items. See center section of this paper for more details. Hope to see you there!
Abraham Lincoln Lithograph Project: Wayne Porter (’65) is leading a project to co-ordinate the
sale of signed lithographs of Abe Lincoln created by Michael Reagan (’65), internationally known artist
and LHS alum. These one-of-kind prints will be on sale at the All Class Luncheon with the proceeds going
to the Scholarship Fund. The original drawing will be a gift from Michael and will hang in a prominent
location in the new high school.
Alumni Open House: Beverly Anderson Washburn (’57), and Monica Fosmire Weber (’73), are co-chairing this one-time event. With the reopening in September for students, we are looking forward
to the special open house for LHS alumni on Wednesday, September 25, from 4:30 to 7:00 pm. Plans are
to have locations in the high schools for classes to meet during the open house. Some graduating classes
are planning dinners or social events after the open house. To be well prepared for this event, the planning
team would appreciate an email indicating if you will be attending. Send to Jack McKay at
jmckay@lincolnlaa.org. Alumni Engraved Pavers: With the brisk sale of engraved pavers, we are planning on the bricks
being engraved in July and August. Through the sale of engraved pavers, you have helped raise over
$15,000 in Scholarship funds. If you wish to purchase an engraved paver, please complete your order by
June 1, 2019 to ensure that it is done by the Alumni Open House.
Alumni Scholarships: The time is now, to alert your family that applications are now being
accepted. The deadline to complete the application is May 2, 2019. All lineal descendants of LHS
graduates are eligible if they are graduating from an accredited high school.
Wallingford Parade – All About Lincoln: Scheduled for Saturday, July 13. We need band
members, song and yell leaders, Chanters and Nonettes, and, of course, all enthusiastic alumni in their red
and black to participate representing the LHS alumni. More information in this paper.
Hall of Fame: Terri Leber Lindeke (71), is chairing the committee to create criteria and a process
of identifying those who have made outstanding contributions to their profession or community during their
professional career or afterward. (terri_lindeke@comcast.net)
Help Needed: There are several committees and tasks that need volunteers to keep this
Association going. The most important is having an alum step forward and be the Editor of the Totem II, our newspaper featuring alumni updates, Lincoln history, and events. Contact Jackie Bauer King (‘67), for
further information (jackie_king@comcast.net).
Volunteers are also needed to serve on the Scholarship Committee, Nominating Committee, Hall of
Fame Committee, and to assist at the Alumni Open House in September. Email your interest
(jmckay@lincolnlaa.org).
In summary, there just a few things to help:
1. Let us know if you are planning to attend the Alumni Open House in September.
2. Let us know if you want an engraved paver for the main entry walkway.
3. Alert your children and grandchildren about the Alumni Association Scholarship Program.
4. Make your reservation to attend the All Class Luncheon!
5. Step forward and volunteer your time and talents.
