* The majority of these classmates will be attending both Friday and Saturday Events.  As of today, 21 classmates will be joining the Bus Tour.  We are planning on inviting several teacher/coaches to our events.  We will keep everyone apprised as to their attendance.

On the Website homepage, you can click on Classmate Profiles and check the circle adjacent to Attending LHS Tour/Meet & Greet and Attending Saturday Dinner & Dancing.  This will provide attending classmate names as well.  Also, if you have not registered on the Website, now is a good time to do so.  All of the Event information including the Registration process is provided on the site.  The Website link is provided below;


Donation Update

Great news - we are tracking ahead of our $9,000 Donation goal.  LHS and the Reunion Committee thank you for your generosity.  It is not too late to make a Donation and exceeding our goals provides some "insurance" as we move into the Class Gift and Reunion expenses.  In today's economic environment, rising prices and "surprise" expenses are always a concern.  

Also, we have had some classmate comments about keeping the Website going beyond our Reunion events.  Additional Donations would enable us to do that.

Covid Update - Massachusetts

As of May 29, all restrictions in Massachusetts have been lifted, with the following exceptions:

Masks are still mandatory for all individuals on public and private transportation systems (including rideshares, livery, taxi, ferries, MBTA, Commuter Rail and transportation stations), in healthcare facilities and in other settings hosting vulnerable populations, such as congregate care settings. Individual businesses may also mandate the use of masks. It is possible that these final restrictions will be removed by September.

The state’s color-coded rating system now has most communities listed as “gray” meaning that there are fewer than ten total cases. Seventy-nine are listed as “green” which means Fewer than 10 average daily cases per 100,000 in population and more than 10 total cases. Four (Lawrence, Brockton, Edgartown, and Fall River) are coded as “yellow”, meaning 10 or more average daily cases per 100,000 in population OR a positive test rate of 5% or higher

There are no longer any cities or towns listed as “red.”

Golf Anyone?

For those staying at The Four Points by Sheraton there is a course near by. The King Rail Golf Club is a 9 hole course that resides on the site of the old Colonial Golf Club. You might want to check with the Sheraton as they may have additional details.  The course is also near the MarketStreet shops.  A link is provided below;

Updated Current Photos

If you have not done so already, we are encouraging everyone on the Website to add a current photo to your profile.  Safe to say, most of us do not look like our Senior photos.
