November was a tremendous month and our biggest single month ever, with
6 new donors, plus 3 repeat donors, bringing in an additional $9,391!
We have finally surpassed our $25,000 goal!
Current total donations are now $28,788, with a total of $27,913
left in our bank account after last year’s IRS filing expense.
The total number of donors has now risen
to 188. All donors
(individuals, couples and groups) are listed alphabetically at the end
of this update.
While we have surpassed our
funding goal, please know if you have yet to donate, you can still
become part of the Memorial as any additional funds will be used for
donations to Veteran’s Charities and possibly scholarships for worthy
HHS students going on to college. So,
if you have not donated and can spare as little as $10 for this worthy
cause to recognize your fellow alumni who served our Great Country, we
will very much appreciate any amount you can spare.
Remember, all donations are
tax deductible. Just follow
the simple instructions below. Your
generosity will be very much appreciated.
Donation checks should be made out to:

We began accepting donations in October, 2014, upon achieving tax-exempt status from the IRS. $3,400 was raised in the remaining 3 months of 2014, $6,200 in 2015 and $8,300 in 2016. We needed to raise an additional $7,100 this year to achieve our $25,000 goal. Now, through the first 11 months of 2017, we have raised $10,866!!
The Hicksville Fire

leave anyone behind from earlier class years (the 1940’s and 50’s)
who served during the Vietnam War Era and deserve recognition.
Please see if you can help us establish if these folks served
during the Vietnam Era (Vietnam Era dates are shown in the “Memorial
Qualifications” section below).
