Lakewood High School Alumni Association 2013



It's so much more than a picnic!


Hello, Lancers,

The Alumni Picnic is always held on the 'Second Sunday of Every July'. Classes of 1958 through the current year. Family members and friends are always welcome. Mark your calendars so you don't miss this amazing annual event for 2013.


Sunday, July 14, 2013
Del Valle Park (Airplane Park)

Woodruff & Arbor -  Lakewood, CA

11 AM to 4 PM

Note: Please, help us to keep this venue for our alumni event. No pets, alcohol or drugs are allowed on park premises.

Extra parking for this event is available after 12:00 pm at the St. Timothy's Church on the southwest corner of Arbor and Woodruff.


What's it all about?

It's a celebration for ALL LHS alumni classes. We have Memory Lane and the 'Fallen Lancer' Memorial exhibits displayed in the Canteen (Youth Center) every year. Classic Cars are parked on the north side of the Canteen (Arbor Rd.) for you car fans & for the last few years we've added some cool looking Harley motorcycles. Note:  If you have a classic car or bike that  you'd like to show this year, please contact me so a spot can be reserved, and be sure to include a photo or 760-521-5871. Only prearranged cars/bikes will be allowed to park in this area. This is a set rule...if you & your car/bike are not on the list you will not be able to park in the coned area! Plan to bring your car or bike early!


The LHSAA's Picnic Committee will have its annual 50/50, and drawings for gift baskets, which are items donated by our local businesses. Our popular 'All Alumni Picnic' button with the favored 'Little Lancer' will be made available again this year for $1 each. All LHSAA fundraising money will go toward next year's 15th 'All Alumni Picnic'.


LHS's booster groups participate every year in this special event. The Football parents sell hamburgers, hot dogs and chips on the Canteen patio. Their wearable & miscellaneous LHS logo items are sold both in the park & patio area. Desserts, soda & bottled water can be purchased from the Lancerette's & Cheer Squad . Please show your 'Lancer Pride' by supporting Lakewood High School's Booster groups! Note: Individuals, or outside businesses, are not allowed to sell their merchandise at this event. Soliciting funds for a private cause is also not permitted.


To be notified about the All Alumni Picnic, and other alumni events, you must register with the LHS All Alumni Database by submitting your full name (maiden included), grad year, email address & a phone number. Email to Sharon Mead Howard at Email is the only method I use to keep you informed every year, and this newsletter is only emailed twice a year in January & June. Please share this newsletter with other Lancers who may not be aware of the All Alumni Picnic or other alumni events.


Classes, feel free to make a sign to designate your class' area in the park, but please do not set up tables, chairs & signs in the LHSAA registration area or the booster booth section of the park.
