Former students of the Lincoln-Hubbard School will see the conversion of their alma mater into senior apartments as part of their reunion activities.
The Lincoln-Hubbard Senior Community is hosting an open house from noon to 2 p.m. Friday at the apartments, 711 N. Osage Ave. The event, which is open to the public, includes door prizes, a performance by a quartet and food.
Belva Morney, vice president of the Lincoln-Hubbard reunion committee, is a resident of the apartments.
“I think they are going to be really excited to see Lincoln-Hubbard preserved as apartments,” Morney said of the reaction of her former classmates upon seeing the renovations.
Seeing the apartments could prompt interest from other former students in becoming residents, Morney said.
“Some people may be getting ready to retire and come back home,” she said.
The open house will kick off the festivities for the reunion of all Hubbard School students. A reunion is hosted every three years. The 2006 reunion saw a turnout of about 250 people.
Other activities throughout the three-day reunion include a dance on Friday night, scholarship and memorial breakfast on Saturday morning and a banquet, class pictures and dance on Saturday night. On Sunday, the reunion will conclude with a picnic in Hubbard Park.
