HICKSVILLE VIETNAM WAR ERA MEMORIAL - PROJECT UPDATE
 
There were no new donors in May and our donation total remains at $34,713.  However, 11 new names were added to the Confirmed List of Names, bringing our total to 1,922!  We were also able to fill in missing data for a number of names on the current list.
If you have yet to donate, or have missing data you can help us with, it's not too late!  Please see our May Update in the Honoring Our Veterans tab of this newsletter for details. 
We are concentrating our efforts to get the Memorial constructed for dedication and unveiling to the public.  Some concern has been expressed regarding weather for the target date of Veteran's Day this year (November 11th).  The Project Team will discuss a warmer weather date, perhaps for Memorial Day, 2019.  A number of Project Team members, local to Hicksville, are participating in this effort.
We trust this note finds everyone after enjoying a good Memorial Day Weekend during which all of our fallen heroes were well remembered.  
As always, should you have any new information to report for either the Confirmed or Unconfirmed Lists of Names, particularly to fill in missing data on the Confirmed List, please email me at jcar4a@aol.com.
On behalf of the Project Team,
Joe Carfora
HHS 1962

Each month, we profile a former student that has submitted a biographical sketch of their life. This month we have highlighted Jim Rerisi from the class of 1961. Many of you have not used the opportunity of sharing precious moments with other classmates. Itís not too late to submit a sketch to be included in the Alumni Bio Section (click the link on the left to go to the bios section) of the newsletter. We are including a writeable document that you can fill in on you computer and, after completing the document, forward to editors@hixnews.com
