From the President

Posted - July 10, 2021
   The summer of 2021 is upon us, and our world has opened up again. Thank goodness! For those of us who are fully vaccinated, we can meet with friends and family face-to-face. I am finally able to get the hugs I so sorely missed. I still use my mask in situations where there are large groups of people, and I am unsure of everyone’s vaccination status. I hope that you are feeling secure and safe outside of your home. It is wonderful to be experiencing some sense of normalcy.
   Due to the ongoing support of our awesome alumni, the LLAA was able to award thirteen scholarships in 2021. These outstanding graduating seniors had many challenges this past year and still maintained exceedingly high standards. Please take the time to read their bios in the Fall edition of the Totem II (soon, the bios will also be posted on our website under Scholarships, 2021 Scholarship Winners). Kudos to the Scholarship Committee headed by Monika Aiken Liro (’79) for their efforts in vetting the candidates. With our investment in these scholarship award winners, our future looks brighter indeed.
   The LLAA had its last Board meeting via Zoom in June. As we have in the past, we are taking the months of July and August off. We are hopeful that when we resume in September, the Board meetings again will be in person at the University House across from Lincoln. University House will let us know in August if this is possible, otherwise we will continue with our Zoom meetings. In the future, please refer to the tab Latest News for any updates to the schedule.
   Thanks to Sandy Stuart Smith (’57) and Suzanne Santwire Lundquist (’63) with help from Linda Ungar Strock (’62) for editing this year’s 50+ paver orders that were submitted to Quiring Monuments to be engraved before the start of school. This brings the total number of pavers purchased to approximately 852. Wow! The net amount after the cost of engraving goes to our Scholarship Fund. Thank you to our alumni for continuing the Lincoln legacy in the Alumni Walkway.
   The LLAA has been assigned a LHS student, Solanes Capps-Mace, who will coordinate activities this coming year between our alumni association and the Lincoln student body. Recently, Diane Smith Cashman (’68) agreed to be our LLAA & LHS Engagement Chair for 2021-2022. We hope to actively engage the soon to be graduating seniors of 2022. The alumni association is looking for creative ways to “tell our story.” And, involve the future alumni in our association. Diane is going to need energetic volunteers to help in this mission. Don’t be surprised if you hear from her – updates to follow.
   There are additional opportunities for you to become involved in your alumni association. With new LHS graduating seniors in 2022, we need to evaluate our current Scholarship Program. Volunteers will be needed for our All Class Luncheon (finally) on Saturday, June 4, 2022 at the Nile Shrine Center. Also, we are still missing class representatives for 1949 (Don Ford has graciously continued to write a column for this class, but would REALLY like to retire), 1960, 1971 and 1978. Consider getting a group of classmates together to share the responsibility of gathering the news of your class. “Many hands make light work.”
   Finally, you will note that our Annual Business Meeting is scheduled for October 23rd. At that meeting, we will be electing a new LLAA president. I have enjoyed representing the association over the last two years, but it is time for a new president. I will continue in a supporting role in the organization. We have much to accomplish to stay healthy and viable. If you or someone you know is an active member and interested in leading the LLAA, please contact our Nominating Committee Chair, James Raptis (’80) at jcraptis@aol.com before September 22nd.
   Kudos to our Totem II Editor, Monica Fosmire Weber (’73) and all our Class Reps for their hard work in getting our great paper to press for the Fall edition.
   P.S. Alumni: don’t forget to renew your membership dues. Those that receive the Totem II newspaper can see expiration date on your mailing label. Alumni receiving the electronic version of the Totem II newspaper need to go to Alumni Login, My Account to see expiration date. Wouldn’t want you to miss out on future issues of the Totem II newspaper. And, if you don’t have a LLAA membership, the cost is $20/yr to receive the Totem II and stay connected with your classmates. What are you waiting for???
   I wish you all an enjoyable summer as we begin the transition into Fall in the Pacific Northwest.
   Go Lynx!
   Jackie Bauer King ('67)
