From the President

Posted - November 14, 2020
As I write this on November 7, 2020, I hardly know how to begin. Our world, the nation, local communities, and each of us individually have faced and continue to face challenges we didn’t dream of at this time last year. I certainly do not have enough knowledge, wisdom, or cannot presume to predict what next year will bring. I don’t know anyone who does. We just keep, “keepin’ on.” There is always hope that the new year will bring positive, healthy, peaceful change and we can leave 2020 in our rear-view mirror!
   The LLAA has had a quiet year with the pandemic shutting down our face-to-face Board meetings, the All Class Luncheon, and many major class reunions. We have been able to conduct LLAA business through Zoom meetings (visit our website at https://lincolnhighlynx.org and look under
Latest News to see Board meeting date/time and the Minutes). This year, we were able to grant 17 scholarship awards to deserving graduating seniors that are lineal descendants of Lincoln High School graduates (visit the Scholarship tab on the website to see this year’s award winners and their bios). Thank you to everyone who continues to donate to our Scholarship Fund and by purchasing the engraved pavers. Our Scholarship Program is something we can all be proud of!
   Our association has a lot on the agenda for next year:
   1. Updating our By-Laws.
   2. Reviewing and Updating our Scholarship Program aka Incorporating the new 2022 Lincoln High School Graduating Seniors.
   3. Getting to Know the Alumni Association – reaching out to LHS parents, students, administration.
   4. Planning and Implementing the Lincoln Hall of Fame.
   These are big plans and will require committees to meet and report back to the Board. To make this work, we need volunteers for these committees. With the advent of Zoom, it is easy for folks to gather from all over the US…you don’t need to be an alumnus in Seattle. We will be actively looking for volunteers in January, but if something interests you, please let me know.
   This holds true for our missing Class Rep positions. As long as you have a computer (and we can make it work even if you don’t!), you can be in contact with your classmates and write news updates for the Totem II three times a year. In addition to our Totem II Editor, Monica Fosmire Weber (’73), you have my support and that of several other Board members. It can be a lot of fun. Think what our paper would be without the important job of the Class Reps – “they are the heart and soul” of the Totem II. We are needing Class Reps for 1949, 1954, 1958, 1960, 1971, and 1978. Please contact me if you are interested: jackie_king@comcast.net. Note: if you want to send your Class Rep a note, login to the website under About Us, then Contact Class Rep. They would love to hear from you!
   A reminder to check your membership expiration date. It appears on the label of your newspaper or you can go to our website under Alumni Login, then My Account to check the date.
   I want to take this time to thank all those who have served on the Executive Committee and Standing Chairs this last year: Suzanne Santwire Lundquist (‘63) Vice President; Lynne Moehring Emmons(’72) Treasurer & Class Rep; Judy Armstrong Roe (’64) Recording Secretary & Website Chair/Database BU; Linda Ungar Strock(’62) Member-at-Large (All Class Liaison), Database Chair & Class Rep; Monica Fosmire Weber (’73) Totem II Editor & Class Rep; Steve LaVergne(’60) Financial Secretary; Sandy Stuart Smith (’57) Member-at-Large (Paver Committee Co-Chair); Verna Sorlie Rossevelt (’66) Historian/Archivist Chair & Class Co-Rep; Gretchen Gaiser Mork (’57) Scholarship Committee Chair; Beverly Anderson Washburn (’57) Merchandise Chair; James Raptis (’80) Nominating Committee Chair & Class Rep. And, of course, all the dedicated Class Reps!! Your hard work and support are much appreciated. It’s amazing what can get done by loyal, dedicated Lincoln Lynx!
  
Lincoln SnowmanTo all our alumni, I wish you a joyful, peaceful holiday season. May you stay healthy, strong, and safe. All the best in 2021!! Go Lynx! 
  Jackie
