Happy Birthday HixNews
We start our 19th 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”!

Tribute to Holly Horton
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, in September of 2000.
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.
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!"
The profile for October is a look back at the class of 1986 with photos of some students "Then & Now".
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
