A New Role for Muny Pool

The old Municipal Pool building is under consideration for an Historic Register designation and the Lincoln Parks and Recreaton Dept. has leased the pool house to the Bike Kitchen, a volunteer group of people who refurbish bicycles for students and others who need them. Lincoln residents generously donate new and used bikes to the kitchen. Hundreds of bikes are given away each year to people in need. It's another job well done just across the parkway from our old alma mater. Click here for the LJS article.


Gatherings For Your Calendar

LHS Monthly Dinner:  All dinners for the rest of this year and 2024 will be 5 pm., the first Thursday of each month, at The Eatery. Come relax, chat with old friends and let someone else do the cooking. Great deal.

We’d like your help!

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!
