We are excited to announce the details for the upcoming Alumni Banquet. The members of the Lind Alumni Association met recently to plan the annual Alumni Banquet. The Banquet will be professionally catered and we have chosen the Memories Diner in Ritzville for the banquet this year. The Banquet will be held at the Lind High School gymnasium on May 6, 2017 (sorry, an error on the 2017 Lions Birthday Calendar says May 13th…which is incorrect) at 6:30 p.m. We encourage you to make plans with your classmates to meet before and/or after the banquet.
Alumni dues are only $10.00 for each Alumnus. Please ensure your dues are paid before attending the dinner.
Guaranteed reservations need to be in April 25th. It is important we receive your reservation by April 25th (phone, email or if mailing, please mail several days ahead of the deadline) as we will need to provide the caterer with a total of meals by this date. Limited reservations can be made at the door, but not guaranteed. For additional information contact Kindra Haase at 509-428-9496.
Please note, as with everything else, the price of the dinner has gone up to $22.50 as our expenses and the caterer have increased. The alumni Board is looking for your help. There is a lot of work in putting this banquet together. To help us in planning for the banquet we ask that you please send your reservation to arrive by April 25, 2017.
We are in the process of obtaining a guest speaker and Master of Ceremonies. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to email and let us know. In addition to the banquet meal there will be introduction of the honored classes, other graduates attending, and the awarding of scholarships to 2017 graduates. All Alumni are invited to attend the banquet with a spouse or a guest. Also, past or present teachers are welcome; if you know a teacher who would like to attend please let us know.
Please note: the Ritzville Journal will be in the gym before the banquet to take pictures of the honored classes for the newspaper. They will begin at 5:30 in the gym. Please be sure to let your classmates know and pick up a photo order sheet before the shoot.
If you are not able to attend the banquet, we would appreciate if you would pay the Annual Dues of $10.00 each year. Money from the dues is used to defray the cost of mailings, dinners for 2017 scholarship recipients, supplies for the banquet, etc. The banquet is a great opportunity to catch up with those you may not have seen since graduating and the more people attending, the better the event. We encourage you to reach out to your former classmates and ask them to attend.
We will again be presenting the Virginia Moorman Moore scholarship along with the Alumni Scholarship. It is a pleasure to present scholarships to young graduates. If you wish to continue supporting the Alumni scholarship fund, please include it on your reservation form or mail your donation to the Lind Alumni Association PO Box 444, Lind, WA 99341-0444. All scholarships will remain with students that reside in the Lind school district.
We save a tidy sum by sending emails to those for whom we have current addresses. Please let us know when you change your email address by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if you have changed your postal address PLEASE update it also. Thank you so much.
We are having a difficult time getting people to respond when we send an email, Facebook message, or call on the phone asking for a family member's changed email. PLEASE check your email or Facebook and return our telephone call. We need the updated addresses to save postage. Again, a big thank you.
Honored classes this year will be 1957, 1967, 1977, 1987, 1992, 1997, 2007 and 2017 Lind School District resident graduates.
Kindra Haase has taken over the Database and she will be needing help with Dues, Reservations, etc. She will need volunteers.
We also need volunteer Board members and helpers in setting the dinner up on the 5th and 6th if our annual banquet is to continue. These positions are important and we need your help. Please volunteer by checking the bottom of your reservation form. Thank you.
