HICKSVILLE VIETNAM WAR ERA MEMORIAL - PROJECT UPDATE
Our full Update for November appears in the Honoring Our Veterans section of this newsletter.
There were no donations in November, so our full list of donors remains at 217. Additional donations are still welcome to help finance the Dedication Ceremony when that event becomes possible, plus future Memorial maintenance needs. Full details on expenses to date, current remaining funds and how to still donate are contained in the November Update.
Given the surge in virus cases with colder weather, there is nothing new to report regarding progress on a date for the Dedication Ceremony and the need for the associated permit and liability insurance for it. We expect, this will remain the case for a number of future months, but we will let everyone know when virus conditions improve and we are able to set a date.
We remain pleased to tell you that our core action team is safe from the virus. We are thankful for this and hope the same is true for all our readers and alumni.
While the Dedication Ceremony remains on hold, 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.
The project will be officially complete once we are able to conduct the Dedication Ceremony at the Memorial.
Wishing All of You a Very Happy & Safe Thanksgiving!!
On behalf of the Project Team,
The profile this month is Richie Simpson from the class of 1961. Have you ever wondered why records sound crisp and clear, for the most part? His career is unique, and the information provided in his profile is difficult to understand but if you paw through the content, you can appreciate what he did all those years to make music records more enjoyable.
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 email@example.com
