Lindsey Wilson College, Columbia, KY, is celebrating its Homecoming Weekend on October 20-21, 2006.
During the two-day celebration, now underway the college will honor four alumni for their professional accomplishments, crown a king and queen, and hold several special events for alumni and friends.
A golden celebration will be held for members of the Class of 1956, who are celebrating their 50-year reunion. Reunions will also be held for former homecoming queens and kings, and also for members of the 1960-61 and 1965-66 men's basketball teams.
Other special events this year include a golf scramble, sweetheart breakfast, and family fun time in the Campus Quadrangle.
This is always such a special weekend at the college," said Lindsey Wilson National Alumni President Ben Burr, a 1964 LWC alumnus and a resident of Bardstown, Ky. "Homecoming is a wonderful weekend of fellowship, a celebration of our college's growth and our alumni's accomplishments." Mr. Burr is the son of the late John and Dean Burr of Guthrie Street, Columbia, KY.
At the Alumni Homecoming Banquet, four alumni of the college will be honored by the Lindsey Wilson National Alumni Association:
"This is a very popular event for not just alumni with small children but also for members of the community," Burr said. "The Campus Quad is a great place for a family to spend a few hours outside on a fall day."
The weekend's events begin on Friday, Oct. 20, with a golf scramble and the Sixth-Annual Morris Shepherd '53 Ping-Pong Tournament.
Saturday will include the annual homecoming parade through Columbia. The parade will begin at 10 a.m. CDT at the top of Lindsey Wilson Hill, wind around the Columbia Square, then travel down Jamestown Street. The parade will include floats by Lindsey Wilson student groups, local civic and government leaders and Lindsey Wilson alumni from across the college's history. The grand marshal will be Elizabeth Whitfield of Bowling Green, Ky. An Adair County native, Whitfield is a 1949 Lindsey Wilson graduate and a trustee emeritus.
The Lindsey Wilson homecoming king and queen will be crowned between the women's and men's soccer games against Auburn University-Montgomery on Saturday afternoon at Lindsey Wilson Park. This will mark the first time in the college's history that the king and queen have been crowned between soccer games.
