"No matter where I roam, a place that's always home..."
The lyrics of Lakeland College's cherished alma mater are the spirit behind the 2010 Alumni Homecoming Celebration on Friday, October 8, and Saturday, October 9. Homecoming is a great opportunity to share experiences, reminisce with old friends, make new friends, visit your old stomping grounds, and cheer on the Muskie football team.
This tradition-filled weekend begins on Friday with a luncheon for the members of the class of 1960 who—at the 50-year mark—become members of the Emeritus Club. Later that afternoon, all the reunion classes (1960, 1970, 1985, 2000, and 2005) are invited to the president's house for a champagne reception. That evening, the Hall of Fame banquet will be held. This year, Jason Bartelt '96, Stephanie (Sprenger) Damrow '97, and Brandon Lawson '98 will be inducted. The 1996 women's softball team also will be recognized for its conference title.
Saturday begins with campus tours and a worship service in the Ley Chapel. Throughout the day, there are alumni games in volleyball, women's basketball, and men's basketball. There will be an alumni and student band rehearsal, a kid's zone, and, of course, the Homecoming football game when the Muskies face Rockford College at 1 p.m.
The weekend culminates with the Alumni Celebration Banquet in Bossard Hall. Several alumni awards will be presented, including: Professional Achievement to Irv Kaage '73 and Barbara Steinberg '73; Outstanding Recent Alumni to Lori Neurohr '01; Service to the College to Edward Michael '95; Service to the Community to David Michael '63; and Honorary Alumni to Vernon Wernecke.
Watch the mail for your Homecoming brochure and don't delay in signing up. We look forward to seeing you in October!
