Invite the Alumni Foundation to Your Class Reunion!

The Lincoln High School Alumni Foundation can assist you at your next class reunion.  We can provide people to handle registration at your event, allowing members of your graduating class to join in the festivities instead of working at the registration table.  In addition, we could provide a photo display of the remodeling of the school building, and offer opportunities to show school spirit such as purchasing a commemorative brick or driveway emblem, and joining the Alumni Foundation. 

If you are interested in knowing more about how we can assist you at your next reunion, email John Thielke, Class of 1980 at
