One new donation was received in December, otherwise there is nothing new to report.
Given the winter season with its cold weather, the possibility of the Memorial Dedication Ceremony, will likely be delayed until spring, when the weather improves and we can hopefully put the Covid Pandemic in the past!
We'll keep you posted as things 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 wish to attend.
At this time the Memorial stones can be viewed in the Hicksville Memorial Gardens on an individual basis at the south side of the Hicksville Middle School on Jerusalem Avenue.
Additional donations will continue to help us cover the cost of the 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, along with information on how to send in new donations.
We trust everyone enjoyed a Very Merry Christmas and we wish All of You and your Families All Good Thing in 2022 !!
On behalf of the Project Team,
