The Lincoln High School Class of 1962 gathers Aug. 24, 2012. This year's get-together will be Friday.
One year ago, Aug. 24, 2012, the Lincoln High School Class of 1962 celebrated its 50-year class reunion.
We had so much fun at all of the events that we are meeting again exactly one year later.
Pizza was popular 50 years ago, and it is still popular. We will meet at Pasquales backroom, "Pat's Pad," starting around 4:30 p.m. Friday. We will share 51 years of happenings with our classmates. Bring your 50th reunion yearbooks so you can update info about each classmate as necessary. It's very informal. Wear your "red and white" and join your class mates for a grand evening of fun, food and remembering.
In case you did not attend last year, here is a summary of what you missed. Friday evening we met for a pizza party at Jennings and Co. The photo was taken during the tour of old Lincoln High school (now East Junior High) on Saturday morning. About 45 to 50 classmates gathered for the tour and then had lunch together at Olympic II. Saturday night we had our main event at Bull's Eye Country Club, 112 attended. Social time allowed for viewing memorabilia from high school years, a lovely memorial tribute and grace was delivered by Sue Johnson Nyberg, a fabulous dinner followed, and then the laughter and fun began.
Bill Cammack was emcee; our faculty guest was Robert Cleworth and his wife, Jane. We were entertained by none other than members of the Class of 1961 - Jon Mullen, Bill Joswick, and Barb Exner Gile. Additional entertainment was provided by our very own classmates. I do believe we had one uninvited guest ... did I hear right ... Elvis is in the building. The rest of the story ... Elvis has left the building! All of this excitement and fun was followed by more time to laugh, talk, share memories and make new ones.
We reconnected with classmates who started with us but are not in our senior annual. We hope you continue to join us whenever we gather together. We hope we have not missed anyone; if you know of a classmate who never has attended a reunion, please let them know that they are invited and are welcome always.
There was a "50th Class Reunion - 50 years of Memories" compiled, each classmate attending the reunion received a copy; a true treasure to enjoy. We continue to follow the banner that follows the right, the red and white of the Rapids! Yeah ... Yeah ... Yeah!
