Concerned Citizenry is all volunteer alumni. The Lincoln School is the only African American landmark in Audrain County on the Natl Historical Registry. The community is not the most diversified and other than the African American support doesn't recieve many local donations. Though the board continues to strive forward with the monthly chicken dinners, dues, and applying for grants the desire is still strong to see this restoration become a reality. Recently the local DAR donated to the purchase of a flag pole , which will be erected in the spring. Please be aware that Lincoln School is not only Black History, but Vandalia History.
