Three generations of the Apel family stand outside the old Lincoln kindergarten entrance.

Three generations of the Apel family started kindergarten at the old Lincoln kindergarten doors. From left, Tonie (Gardner) Apel began at age 4 in 1962, Blake started at Lincoln with the same kindergarten teacher, Laurel Keethler Hutchinson in 1991. Blake's daughter, Tonie’s granddaughter, Savannah began kindergarten with one of our current teachers, Donna Kichler, in 2009. Tonie said Monday morning, “Kinda sad seeing it go...lots of memories for me as a student, a teacher, a counselor, a mom and PTO member, and then a Nana!”
