HICKSVILLE VIETNAM WAR ERA MEMORIAL - PROJECT UPDATE   

The FINAL Confirmed List of Names, organized alphabetically by graduating class year, just as it will appear on the actual Memorial, is what we first published last month and will continue to publish from now on.  To review the final list, please go to this month's Update in the Honoring Our Veterans tab of this issue of HixNews.
Construction progress is on a roll!  Plus, $1,000 was received in new donations in June!  For details, please see the June 2019 Update, as noted above.
 
Bill Walden, key project team member, commander of Hicksville's VFW Post and leader of Hicksville's Memorial Day Parade, mentioned our Vietnam Era Memorial during a ceremony held at the Jerusalem Avenue Middle School's Memorial Gardens on Memorial Day.  We are receiving excellent additional support as our Memorial was also covered at the ceremony by NY State Assemblyman Mike Montesano, Nassau County Legislator Rose Walker and Hicksville Schools Superintendant Litzman.
 
As always, should you wish to make any comments on the Project's status, please email me atjcar4a@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 Sofia Cheyenne who is the daughter-in-law of Cheryl Gries Brown from the class of 1972. 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
