On behalf of the Project Team,
We start our 18th year with the October issue.
HixNews has come a long way since 2000 and the success is because of
participation. It seems we begged so long for information from “you
all”! The begging continues and the editors want to thank everyone who
has contributed information that piques the memories of many! If you post
something on Facebook, please send a copy to the editors.
Each month, we profile a former student that has submitted a biographical sketch of their life. This month we have highlighted Paul Bady from the class of 1962. Many of you have not used the opportunity of sharing precious moments with other classmates. It’s 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
The untimely death of Holly Horton in
2000 saddened our hearts. She was a very spirited person who enjoyed life
and enriched those she touched with unselfish commitment. Holly was
instrumental in bringing Hicksville High School (HHS) together again just
prior to a mega reunion, organized by Anton Mure and Rich Delia, that was
attended by a wide variety of alumni on September 22nd, 2000.
Holly authored a mailing list that she
put onto a website. Her sometimes daily updates of names and addresses
were eagerly anticipated by the growing list of alumni. Her emails were
augmented by a collage of tidbits and trivia, a result of feedback from
others. She put up special photographs that we all enjoyed and that effort
united a wide bracket of HHS students. She did this because she wanted to
give back special moments to others by providing a source that could be
accessed by all of us.
Holly was attending
A fitting way to pay respect to Holly
was to continue what she started. That challenge was accepted by Pat
Koziuk Driscoll (Class of 1956) and Linda Piccerelli Hayden (Class of
1960). They did this out of respect for Holly but also because they see
the enjoyment others realize from their effort. It's a way to introduce
coming events; such as reunions for various classes. It's an avenue for
contacting friends and sharing information that we all treasure. We have
the capacity to put up pictures, at various web sites, for all of us to
enjoy. In other words, the newsletter is a perfect vehicle for keeping
people apprised of "what's happening!"
I want to personally say 'THANKS"
to Pat and Linda for all that you do for me and for the alumni of
Holly A. Horton, a resident of
Mure class of 1968 & MidLife Crisis
