Country school to hold reunion

A reunion for the Lincoln District #12 country school near Meckling will be held Saturday, July 15 at the Fellowship Hall at Bergen Lutheran Church.

The event begins with coffee time at 11 a.m. and will include a buffet lunch provided by Ma and Pa's Catering at noon. Tickets are $15; reservations are necessary and can be made by calling Margo Ryken at 605-267-4128 or by e-mail at jryken@byelectirc.com by July 7.

Everyone is welcome to attend; former students and teachers, their families, and anyone interested in the history of country schools. Artifacts and photos from the school will be on display.

Tours of the school building, which was built in 1914, will be available following the lunch. Lincoln #12 is one of the few country school buildings still intact in the area, and it is on the National Historic Registry. The school district was formed in 1862, and closed in 1970.
