[April 24, 2007]  Lincoln College has announced plans for its annual alumni reunion weekend. Festivities will be Friday through Sunday.

A wine and cheese reception will start the weekend events at McKinstry Memorial Library from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Friday. Dr. Dennis Campbell and Judd McCullum will be on hand to introduce the guests to a nearly 12,000-year-old woolly mammoth tusk. Guests will meet Lincoln College President John Hutchinson along with his wife, Jean Ann. Cost is $10 per person. Guests are also invited to attend the annual Lincoln College spring concert in the Johnston Center for Performing Arts.

On Saturday morning the second annual Run, Ramble and Roll -- a 5K run and noncompetitive one-mile walk -- will start at 10 a.m. Check-in is at Meyer-Evans Student Center and cost is $25 per person. Each participant receives a T-shirt, post-race brunch and a gift certificate for a free chair massage at Lincoln College's Midwest College of Cosmetology. Proceeds from the race will go to Lincoln College's scholarship fund.

A women's basketball alumni game and contest will be from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Davidson-Sheffer Gymnasium. Former Lincoln College coaches Donna Bonebrake and Cyndi Slayton-Jackson will be honored at the alumni program later in the evening.

Hollywood producer and Lincoln College alum Bruce Block (LC '68) will present an inside look at filmmaking and what it's really like to live and work in Hollywood. Block's presentation will run from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Johnston Center for Performing Arts. He will sign autographs after the event. Block's film credits include "The Holiday," "Christmas with the Kranks" and "What Women Want," among others. (See related article posted previously.)
