Champaign (Illinois) High School Class of 1956 sponsors a Net Cafe' as a place to gather and share addresses, memories, accomplishments and dreams.

This Web Site was the result of an idea Dave Geist had in 1999. He passed away April 1, 2001 but contributed a lot before his death.
A page has been added to this site to help you keep in touch with old friends.

This web site has been named for one of our favorite "hang-outs" that no longer exists. When we all attended CHS the in place to be and be seen was Lendales. We know it can never be replaced, but we hope this "Lendales" might be a meeting place for us on the net.
