Dear Friends and Families,
On behalf of St. John’s Military School Historical Museum (SJMS-HM), it is my honor and privilege to
invite you to the official Grand Opening Celebration of SJMS-HM from May 13 – 15, 2021.
In the 131 year history, St. John’s gave thousands of young men the opportunity to earn a quality education,
develop personal values and build self-esteem; qualities essential to living a successful life as a loving husband
and father and a productive member of our society. We are extremely proud of the accomplishments that were
made possible by our SJMS-HM family and Salina Community. Through these efforts, the first stage of construction
has been completed i.e. renovation and decoration of the Linger building into a museum and we are
looking forward to the success of phase 2. Our vision for this next phase is to focus on the teardrop, where so
many of us marched our tours. While the Muleskinner statue, Guernsey/Loy Memorial, Freedom Tree, SJMS
Veterans Memorial and flag pole have already been moved and placed, the rest of the area will have a 2/3 representation
of the teardrop, lined with flag memorial markers and named pavers. The Grand Opening weekend
will not only showcase the warm, and inviting atmosphere of your museum, but will also give us the opportunity
to raise funds for the completion of phase 2. It is our hope that through the generosity of our donors, we
will be able to complete phase 2 by year end.
We sincerely hope you will join us for our memorable weekend, in celebrating the comraderie of Old Boys
and bringing together our memories that will last a lifetime.
Enclosed, you will find a schedule and link for registration to our Grand Opening event, discounts to hotels,
and other venues for our special weekend. We look forward to celebrating this memorable event with you.
Thank you and God bless
SJMS-HM Board of Directors President
