One new donor brings total donations to $35,063, since our last report in the 10/1/18 issue of HixNews.  There were no changes in October for either the Confirmed List of Names, or the Unconfirmed List.  The Confirmed List remains at 1,930 names.  
If you have yet to donate, or have missing data you can help us with, it's not too late!  Please see our October Update in the Honoring Our Veterans tab of this issue for details.  This Update also contains a highlighted paragraph summarizing the current status of Memorial Construction
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, or, should you wish to comment on the Project's status, please email me at

Each month, we profile a former student that has submitted a biographical sketch of their life. This month we have highlighted Ronnie Klein Witlin from the class of 1969. 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

Joe Carfora, class of 1962, with wife, Sharon; Santo Carfora, class of 1964, with wife Jeanne; Peter Colling, class of 1972, with wife Carmela “Candy” Carfora Colling, class of 1973; and friends Carol & Daniel Webster (Aunt & Uncle to Sharon) went on a Rhine River Cruise in late August. The photo gallery for November features photos that Joe and Sharon captured on this spectacular trip. The cruise began in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and traveled up the Rhine to Basel, Switzerland. Joe & Sharon and Carol & Daniel extended their tour 2 days and ventured to Lake Luzern while the others went home. You can view the trip by clicking here.
