Lake Highlands High School invites the neighborhood to a reception next month to honor retiring RISD school board member and neighborhood resident Luke Davis.

We know it’s a busy time of year — weddings, graduations and such — so mark your calendar for May 24  from 5-6:30 p.m. in the high school library. A patriotic concert at the freshman center will follow the farewell party .

Davis used to write a column for us. Here’s the last one, from Aug. 2009.
