One new donor's contribution in the amount of $200 was recorded this past month! Otherwise, there is nothing new to report from our August 1 Update, where we indicated the following:
Plans for an official monument dedication remain on hold due to virus regulations and restrictions.  At this time the monument can be viewed in the Hicksville Memorial Gardens on an individual basis at the south side of the Hicksville Middle School. 
We understand that Hicksville and Levittown rank #1 & #2 in the number of Coronavirus cases in Nassau County. We'll keep you posted as things begin to change and promise that we will alert everyone of the dedication ceremony date, once we have it officially approved.  We will also give everyone as much advance notice as possible, in the event they can and wish to attend.
Additional donations can continue to help us cover the cost of a Dedication Ceremony gathering for school district and local official dignitaries, as well as to honor donors who have made very significant contributions to the Memorial.  Further donations will also help with maintenance and upkeep of the Memorial for many years to come.
The project will be officially complete once we are able to conduct the Dedication Ceremony at the Memorial.
Please visit the Honoring Our Veterans tab of this newsletter for the full update.

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.
