Greetings Fellow Lynx!
     Well, where to start; probably with what is weighing most on everyone’s minds. We are all pretty much confined to our homes right now and being bombarded with daily updates on this deadly “silent enemy,” COVID-19. It seems to have snuck up on us so fast and we certainly weren’t prepared for fighting this war. Many of us are facing the fear of catching this deadly disease. I looked up the definition of “fear” in the dictionary and found these words: “Fear is an emotion induced by perceived danger or threat, which causes physiological changes and ultimately behavioral changes; an unpleasant emotion; implies anxiety and usually loss of courage.” I for one, feel the best way to face this fear is to be proactive: stay put, wash hands, practice social distancing (new vocabulary term!), have my healthy children run errands, etc. But I have found joy in getting outside and walking my dogs, reading a book, working a jigsaw puzzle, calling/emailing friends (and classmates!!), working in the yard. There is much we can do right now to slow down, reflect, enjoy, count our blessings, and know that “this too shall pass.”
     Due to these unprecedented times, the LLAA has cancelled its April and May Board meetings and the June 6, 2020 All Class Luncheon. Linda Ungar Strock (’62), All Class Luncheon Liaison, was able to re-schedule the luncheon for Sunday, September 13, 2020 at the Nile Shrine Center. We know that may not work for everyone, but the Nile had limited availability and we didn’t want to lose our deposit. Hopefully, we’ll all be healthy and ready for a grand “social gathering” with classmates at the All Class Luncheon in the fall! Please see our Events page to register
(see our Events page click here) .
     Also, we will be wrapping up this round of paver engravings to be completed late spring when school is out. For us to get all our orders processed, we must have your Paver Form and payment received by the deadline of June 13, 2020 If you have any questions, you can contact Sandy Smith (’57) at sfsmith123@aol.com . The Paver Form can be found: click here.
     The LLAA is an “aging” organization. We are experiencing a decline in alumni membership. We have been expecting this for some time, and it will continue until we have our new Lincoln alumni (2022) to join our association. After many, many years of offering our membership to alumni individuals and families at $15/yr, the Board has voted to raise the dues to $20/yr effective July 1st to compensate for the deficiency. We trust this will not be a burden on our alumni. You have until the first of July to renew your dues at the old rate. You can go to Alumni Login to renew or the Membership tab. The mail-in registration form is here: click here.
     I want to thank Verna Sorlie Rossevelt (’66) for all the work she did on researching the history of our Traditions (T-Day) Day. She scanned photos from every annual from 1945 to 1981 depicting each year’s celebration of this special day. When the school is open again, I encourage you to visit our Alumni Room and look through all the historical documents that she and others have stored there.
     In closing, some of our LLAA projects are now on hold because of the cancellation of Board meetings. We will always try and keep the website updated with any news made available to us. Feel free to contact Judy Armstrong Roe (’64), Website Chair, at judy.g.roe@comcast.net with reunion updates. Also, we need Class Representatives for many of the classes: 1949, 1950, 1958, 1960, 1971, 1978. Please consider updating your classmates in the Totem II and representing your class on the Board. If interested, you can contact me at jackie_king@comcast.net
     Stay connected, stay safe, stay strong!
     All my best,
     Jackie Bauer King (’67)
