HICKSVILLE VIETNAM WAR ERA MEMORIAL - PROJECT UPDATE   

Construction of the Vietnam War Era Memorial is now complete!!!  The only exception is a possible image to be  added to the top of the Center Stone to make it taller.  Anyone may now stop by to view the Memorial!  Current photos can be seen on the Home Page of last month's issue of HixNews by clicking on the Archives tab of this issue.  
The official Dedication Ceremony will be announced in the new year, at least a month before the actual date, for a day in the spring when weather should be best for an outdoor event.  We only have $3,525 left in Memorial Funds and more may be needed, so it is still not too late to donate, especially since no new donations were received in October, or November.
 
For additional details, please see the latest Update, located on the Honoring Our Veterans tab of this newsletter.
 
We trust this finds you after enjoying a Very Happy Holiday Season and we wish each of you All Good Things for 2020!!
 
As always, should you wish to make any comments on this Update, please email me at jcar4a@aol.com.
On behalf of the Project Team,

HHS 1962

Each month, we profile a former student that has submitted a biographical sketch of their life. This month we have highlighted Louis James Sabato from the class of 1982. 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
