Our full Update for August appears in the Honoring Our Veterans section of this newsletter.
New donations totaling $150 have been recorded!  If you are not financially strapped due to the Pandemic, we can still use your help for the Dedication Ceremony (when that becomes possible) and for future Memorial maintenance.  As always, details on how to donate are contained in the July Update.
There was still no new progress this month due to the continuance of the Pandemic.  We are pleased to tell you that our core action team is safe and in good health.  We are thankful for this and hope the same is true for each of our readers and alumni.
While further action is at a stand still, please remember that the Memorial is complete and can be viewed by anyone visiting the Memorial Gardens located on the south side of the Jerusalem Avenue Middle School.
This project will be officially completed once we are able to conduct the Dedication Ceremony at the Memorial.
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
On behalf of the Project Team,
Joe Carfora

Hicksville High classes used to have pages in the yearbook that highlighted students who were selected as Best Looking, Most Likely to Succeed, Best Athlete, Best Musician, Best Actor, and other categories. The profile this month shows the “Best Looking” for years beginning in 1956 through 1965 when it appears that precedence stopped. Check out all these handsome people and let me know who you think, guy and gal, is your choice for “Best Looking”?
