Reunion Photo Gallery to date. Send your photos.

If you were taking photos at our June 3-5, 2022 61st Class Reunion would you please send them by email to Donna Filbert Ewoldt?  Photography was one job not specifically assigned by the committee to any classmate and we are not sure who may have what.  They will be shared here on the website.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!  


The 61st reunion of the Class of 1961 is over for now but we'll be posting photos, statistics and information. Steve Davidson donated tee shirts for everone. The black and red lettering against the links statue was striking and so the many wearers got lots of attention. Some hotel guests were surprised that we were still having fun at our "age".  The hospitality room was hopping every evening and lots of snacks went into the record bowls Janell Winsor Dressen made. Our hospitality room "hosts" did a great job of packing in all kinds of food and beverages. Bob Marker, Steve Davidson, Dave Drevo, Harold Monismith and Gary Drager were there the whole weekend to help make eveyone feel welcome.  Our registrar and finance person, Mary Gilbert Jorgensen had lists at the ready of who was doing what. Cathy Stump Rauch did a great job of contacting classmates and encouraging them to come. She handed out a list of 186 deceased classmates and worked with the printer to make a new poster that was on display. Shiela Thomas Alemzadeh and Karen Dahlbeck Nuttleman made name tags with LARGE writing and shared duties with Sharon Dumler Gottsche and Janell to keep the registration table staffed. Vi Marks Baker supplied Lincoln packets from the Chamber of Commerce. The red and black Baker's Chocolates were donated by Barb Pangle Clark and Ken. Embassy meals, chosen by Mary Ann Meisner and Bob Marker, including breakast were plentiful as well as delicious. We didn't come close to running out of food or fun. Classmates who attended and also stayed home sent incredibly generous donations that helped make the reunion more affordable.  More information will be posted about the video put together by Donna Filbert Ewoldt that played during dinner and in the hospitality suite.  A few photos of the hospitality suite are posted in th Photo Gallery. We'd like to have all photos taken by classmates sent in to be uploaded so contact us please.  More Later!



Funding was secured to have the Pershing Auditorium mosaic tiles removed for restoration before reinstalling them at another location, possible a building at the Lancaster County Event Center, 84th and Havelock Ave.

The Scribe is back!

Let us hear if you contributed to The Scribe or helped with the publication.


The Lincoln High women's basketball team is ranked 4th having had their best season to date in 21 years. Senior guard, J'Unti Franklin has emerged as a points leader in an already talented line up.  Click here for the LJS article.

Lincoln High grad and holder of several state high school records in the hurdles Darius Luff is making a national name for himself as a Husker track and field star. Now in his 3rd year with UNL, Darius hopes to keep lowering his times and his coaches say it will most likely happen this spring. Go Links!

We’d like your help to update our classmate contact information prior to our 61 + reunion.

PLEASE pass along addresses, emails, cell phones, land lines and health status regarding our LHS classmates.  Any phone calls you would like us to make, we will do gladly.  

It has always been the goal to compile a complete class list.  All LHS students who attended LHS for part or all of the years of fall 1958 through spring 1961.  This list appears on this website under “Classmate Profiles”.  For most we have their address.  But never sure if we’re current.  So please, pass along what you know.  Any name with no symbol following it, is a classmate who has not joined the website.

Future LHS Class of 1961 Reunion plans will be sent via U.S. Mail to everyone for whom we have an address. The LHS Class of 1961 website may be accessed by any classmate with an email address.  To join the website click on your name under "Classmate Profiles" and follow the directions.  Much more class information is available and shared regularly on the website for those who would like to use it.  

Click "Contact Us" - on the right, top of page.

Thank you!
