With the help of the Hicksville American Legion and the Hicksville Fire Department, hosts of this year's Memorial Day Parade and the parade ceremonies, which followed and were held at the Jerusualem Avenue Middle School Memorial Gardens, our Dedication Ceremony was successfully hosted by committee member, Tommy Sullivan.
The success of this Project could not have taken place without the help of our Memorial Committee, the cooperation of HixNews and its editors, plus the numerous donations of Hicksville High School Alumni and other Hicksville organizations.  The excellent cooperation from Hicksville's Superintendent of Public Schools, Marianne Litzmann and her staff is also very much appreciated.
Our heartfelt Thank You to all those mentioned above who enabled this Memorial, to those who served our Great Country and those who paid the ultimate price for their service, during the Vietnam War Era, to happen!!
A full report on the Dedication Ceremony, including pictures, will be in the August 1 issue of HixNews, for reasons stated in this month's Update. 
Further information on the disposition of names submitted for the Memorial after its construction, along with plans for the final donation of any remaining funds to worthy Veteran's causes, will be published in future issues of HixNews.
Additional donations are still welcome.  Please see our detailed report on the Project's status, along with Tommy Sullivan's reflection on being our Dedication Ceremony MC, in the Honoring Our Veterans tab of this issue of HixNews.
On behalf of the Project Team,
Joe Carfora
