The 2018 Lincoln Homecoming is history. This year’s event celebrated was hosted by the Lincoln-Zephyr Club, which celebrated its 50th anniversary with a special three-say tour to northern Indiana prior to the annual Homecoming weekend at Hickory Corners.
Participation at the Homecoming was down, in part, because no special tour or events were planned at Hickory Corners this year.
We did, however, have an enjoyable time—one attendee described it as “a large picnic with your car friends.” A good description.
There was a fine turn-out of Lincoln-Zephyrs and Continentals. Watch for a photo of them lined up in front of the Lincoln museum. Friday afternoon, a VIP reception was held in the Lincoln museum for those individuals who have donated $5,000 or more. Each individual received a custom-designed pin that will be presented to all donors at the $5,000 or higher level. Note: individuals who did not attend will receive their in the mails shortly.
The highlight of the weekend was the Saturday evening dinner, held for the first time at the Gilmore Car Museum conference center.
Following dinner, there was an impromptu fund raiser that brought in more than $41,000 for the museum’s endowment fund.
A big “thank you” to all who worked to make this year’s Homecoming so enjoyable.
A more complete report will appear in the next issue of the Lincoln Link, as well as in Lincoln club publications.
