Today is Abraham Lincoln's 200th birthday. Happy Birthday, Mr. Lincoln!!
Back in 1962, our entire high school (grades 9-12) climbed into two (2) school buses and drove from eastern Iowa to Springfield, Illinois. It was an annual trip that the school always planned for the students. Can you imagine today, taking the whole high school on a trip? I will admit at this time, the population of the school was 88. Amazing, isn't it?
I managed to take a picture out of our yearbook, The Bugle, that shows the front of the Lincoln home and one of our students who was very, very tall at the time, standing in front of a poster of Lincoln.
These are special memories of high school and each and every graduate remembers and cherishes them. I never fail to think of this page in the yearbook and our trip to Springfield on Lincoln's birthday.
