Linden International Reunion Association (LIRA) is a non-profit organization that was formed in 1992 by a group of Lindenites living in the USA. Under the leadership of Pastor Alan B. Johnson, this group hosted its first reunion May 22 - 25, 1992 at Camp Winneakeag in Ashburnham, Massachusetts. The Theme that year was: "Linking our past with our present and future".

2. To support charitable and humanitarian work in the community of Linden, Guyana and elsewhere where the need exists.

3. To support educational projects and relief efforts in Linden Guyana and among the Guyanese community in the United States of America.
