The day is Saturday, December 2 in the year 1967.

District voters approve building referendum (December 2, 1967): Knowing that the provisions of the Community College Act required a junior college district generate 25% of the funds needed to pay for constructing permanent buildings, the board asked voters to approve a $3,910,000 bond issue. This figure reflected the college’s master plan, produced by two different architectural firms: John Shaver and Company from Salina, Kansas, and Philips, Swager, and Associates of Peoria, Illinois. Using projection figures to 1987, the firms’ plan determined 312,500 gross square feet would be required to adequately serve the educational needs of current and future Lake Land students.
