In 1976, I said farewell to Lincoln Elementary School after I finished sixth grade. Now I'm going to have to say farewell again. After 85 years, the school district is closing the building.
I attended Lincoln back when York Flegel was the principal. I still remember many of the teachers and other faculty members; too many for me to name here. Many of them, if not all of them, are retired now. Some of them have since passed away. Now the building will be retired. So farewell, Lincoln. You served our community well.
