HICKSVILLE VIETNAM WAR ERA MEMORIAL - PROJECT UPDATE
We are still providing a report this month, especially for those of you who may have been too preoccupied with the world situation to read last month's issue.
This is a frustrating time period for all of us! Especially frustrating for your Project Team as the Memorial is complete and just needs its official dedication ceremony to be finalized!
Given the Pandemic, it still makes no sense to set a dedication date until we have the "all clear" from the Federal Government and NY State for gatherings of more than ten people. Once we have a dedication date it will be published both in HixNews and on the Hicksville Facebook pages.
We still can't report on March or April donations as Bill Walden, our treasurer, remains quarantined in his out of state vacation home, but we can tell you it is still not too late to donate!! At this point, Bill states he may not be back until June, which likely will not enable us to provide a donations update, since February, until the July issue of HixNews.
For full UPDATE, including how to make your donation, please click on the Honoring Our Veterans tab of this newsletter.
We trust all readers are staying safe at this difficult time. As always, should you wish to make any comments on the Update, please email me at email@example.com.
On behalf of the Project Team,
started out as a two or three page email that was sent to some 100 or so
readers in October of 2000. Eventually, it evolved into a multi-page
newsletter that was placed onto its own website in 2005 and was supported
with many special features. It was fortunate that Pat saw many of the
changes that surfaced over the years.
probably never knew Pat was not in the best of health because she was
never looking for sympathy or an ďattaboy!Ē She
didnít complain but just kept going like the energizer bunny. Pat shared
time with her Florida pals shopping and fraternizing despite
needing special consideration over the years. Pat spent most of her last
year on oxygen 24/7.
loved her portable transportation (a golf cart) that provided the mobility
she lacked because of her dependence on oxygen. Her death created a void
that exists today.
efforts brought many hours of joy to HixNews readers who waited patiently
each month for tidbits of information. Pat, along with Linda Piccerelli
Hayden, a 1960 graduate were the pioneers of HixNews. They spent many
hours scouring through emails from former students gathering information
that was typed into an email and sent out the beginning of each month.
was surrounded by family when she was summoned by a higher authority. This
was not at all unusual because family was her life. She spent many hours
enjoying those she loved most.
Each month, we profile a former student that has submitted a biographical sketch of their life. This month we have highlighted Robert Lucania from the class of 1973. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
