Davenport Community News

From 1979 to 1986, I attended Lincoln Fundamental School (an elementary school) in Davenport, Iowa. I moved from Iowa to Dover, Delaware in the summer of 1986 and have since lost all contact with any of my old classmates from the school.
Are any of my classmates out there? I'm curious to see where everybody "landed" in life.
If so, please contact me at:
Thank you,
Ian Janssen
