Suggested Schedule

The Summer 2012 issue is scheduled to print in June and will focus on global thinking.  In order to meet this print date, all the notes should be received by April 2. Class scribes are encouraged to follow the suggested schedule below:

  • January - March: All emails and/or postcards are sent out or all phone calls are made to classmates by this date encouraging them to return news to scribes by March 26.
  • March 26: Scribes receive news from their classmates.
  • March 26 - April 2: Scribes prepare and edit their Class Notes.
  • April 2: Class Notes submission deadline.  All news is due to the Alumnae Office.

Gathering Class Notes

You can use any of the following ways to gather notes from your classmates:

  • Email: Send an email to your classmates asking them to write back with their news and photos or to post their news and photos on the Online Alumnae Community.
  • Phone: Call your classmates and write down highlights of your conversation or encourage them to post their class notes online.
  • Mail: Write your own note or send Lincoln's double postcards to your classmates.  (Please call me if you would like to use the postcards. I would be happy to send you as many as you need.)
  • Facebook: Lots of scribes have had success finding classmates who have fallen out of touch by becoming Facebook friends with them.
  • Website: You or your classmates can send in notes by submitting a form directly on our website.  Just click here.

Please ask your classmates to send their news directly to you, to Lincoln's Alumnae Office, or to post them on the Online Alumnae Community.  (If they have not yet registered for the Online Alumnae Community, they can contact Lincoln's Alumnae Office for their registration ID.)
