Concordia Lutheran High School News - 2017
Happy New Year to all of you. We greet all of you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ whose birth we were able to celebrate for another year here on this earth. Here are some updates for this new year.
1. Music - We hope some of you were able to attend the Christmas concert called Christmas at the Embassy. Most of the downtown theaters we used to go to as kids have been closed, but the Embassy survives and is still the cultural center for the downtown area. The Christmas concert has been held there for many years, and this year's concert was another outstanding performance from all areas of the music department. There is even a time for audience members to come down and join in the "Hallelujah Chorus." If you are anywhere close to Fort Wayne next Christmas, make it a point to attend. You will be impressed and inspired.
2. Sports - The high school is still basking in the glow of the state football championship we announced to you through e-mail last fall. The girls' basketball team has lost only three games and is ranked in the top ten again this year. They have won two state chamionships in the last few years and appear to have a shot again. Boys' basketball is in a rebuilding mode having won only one game. Our classmate Mike Mommer thanks you for all your prayers and is fully recovered from his heart issues. He has been the boys' golf coach at CLHS for many years.
3. March for Life - Last year CLHS sent a group of 85 students and leaders to Washington, DC for the annual March for Life. You may remember that bad weather forced us to come back early, keeping us from participating in the actual march. This year another group of about 80 people will head to Washington on Wednesday night, January 25. They will arrive on Thursday morning for a day of touring and spend Thursday evening at a nearby school in sleeping bags. The march will be held on Friday. Please pray for our students as they travel.
4. 55th Reunion - As we announced in an earlier e-mail our 55th reunion is tentatively planned for the last weekend of September 2018. Our Saturday night event will be held at Goeglein's. We will probably have an informal Friday-night get-together as well. The feeling on the committee is that the 55th will be less formal and light on planned activities and heavy on fellowship.
5. Prayers and Concerns - Thanks to all of you who prayed for or contributed to the Selle family this past fall. Pastor Karl Selle (husband of Karol Gill Selle) lost his battle with cancer at the end of last year. Please continue to pray for their family. We also ask you to pray for Gretchen(Albers) Breininger, sister of Jane Albers. She is battling health issues as is their son. Husband Terry Breininger was the Executive Director of CLHS for the past several years. We don't know of any other concerns at this time, but please let us know if you would like us to share any concerns with our class.
