Class of 1962 ”50” Year Reunion
Saturday, October 6th, 2012

7PM -12AM  HOLIDAY INN, Plainview , N.Y.
Please be sure Karen Hubner Jenkins has your current e-mail address ( mamaj26@aol.com )

Our Reunion Website  62.hixreunion.com


An alumni from the class of 1963, Jeanne Dethlefsen, has forwarded a photograph from Old Country Road school during the 1953-1954 school year. Jeanne sent along a list of names of those pictured. We went through the 1963 Yearbook and found photos of many pictured in that class.

However, there was a long list of people who were not in the 1963 yearbook and we can only speculate on what happened to those alumni. Here are the names Jeanne suggested...Lorraine Dethlefsen, Tommy D'Amoto, Jane Shackinback, David Sarota, Lynette Statz, Nancy Davey, Tommy Arundel, Marie Miller, Gail Mosely, Vernon Ritter, Larry Green, James Glass, Billy Hutchinson, Donald Mott and Matthew M.

Please go to the Photo Gallery and help fill in some of the blanks. If you recognize someone who is not named, please put a name to the face. Also, if you know what happened to your classmate, they moved, went to private school, went to Catholic school or whatever, give us a shout.

Thanks

Hicksville Vietnam War Era Memorial Project – UPDATE

We’re back strong after a brief hiatus for the Holidays with a full head of steam for the New Year!  Good work continued in both December and January with the addition of 49 new names for a new total of 1,765.  Also, substantial headway continued on filling in missing data for many of the people on our List of Names. 

 

In addition to our efforts to build and refine the List of Names, Bill Walden, serving as our local Project Leader on the scene in Hicksville and Ken Strafer, our Project’s Original Founder, made positive strides in January towards bringing our efforts to a successful conclusion.  Please see the full update in the Honoring Our Veterans section of the newsletter for details.  You can also access the full List of 1,765 Veterans by clicking on the link near the bottom of the update.

With regard to missing data (as noted by red question marks on the List of Names), it remains important for you to review the list for missing information or existing information that needs correction, even if you don’t have new names to send us.  Please email me if you can help us fill in these blanks.  High school class year has been specifically noted, where we have it, to make this review easier for you by quickly scanning the list for people you may know.  Please pitch-in and help us make this Project a big success!

Our objective remains not to miss anyone who meets the Memorial Qualifications and deserves to be included in the Memorial and you can still help us make this happen.

We hope all of you got off to a bright start in January and wish each and everyone a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous 2012!

On behalf of The Project Team,

Joe Carfora, HHS ’62


Places Our Alumni Have Visited

 

I've been looking at where our alumni have been and I'm sure there are no stones unturned as far as where on this wonderful earth we have visited, collectively. So many have been to Orlando, to San Francisco, to the Empire State Building and to a multitude of places that have been very dramatic experiences.

Why don't we establish a catalog of who has been where and get some

wonderful background that we can share with our expanding newsletter mail list. How many of my classmates have been on a United States Navy ship that went up the Congo River 12 to 13 miles to the port of Banana?

I did. Ask and you can find out.

love yah

Robert Edward Gleason Wesley
1943 – 2010

Two years ago, February of 2010, we lost Bob Wesley. He was a good friend to many and always had an open ear when someone needed a listener. Bob had a very interesting life and he touched many who benefited from his wisdom.

He was instrumental in taking the Hicksville High Newsletter from ancient times into the new world. The website he established exists today and many can thank Bob for his vision of what future issues of the newsletter should be.

   

We continue to miss him.
