We are asking that anyone with a yearbook they don't need, or if there is an extra one lying around, would you please donate it to the Hicksville Newsletter.
As we edit documents that are received, we enjoy putting pictures of the graduating student at the end of the note. We have been scanning using available yearbooks. Buffalo Bob has 1960, 1961 and 1963

Naturally, there are many pictures, other than the graduating alumni...i.e. Sports Shots, Various Clubs, Senior Play, Student Council and many others that we would like to put into the photo gallery. Please take a look at some of the shots in the current month photo gallery.

We would ask, too, that if you can, when you send a note to HixNews, attach a picture of yourself from graduation and a current one.

One final note...who out there would be willing to scan some documents from their yearbook to send to HixNews?

Come see Tommy Sullivan in concert Sunday November 1st at  2 PM at the Hicksville Public Library on Jerusalem Avenue.

A Hicksville High School graduate, Tommy is a founding member of the original Johnny Maestro & the Brooklyn Bridge and an inaugural inductee to the Long Island Music Hall of Fame.

In the late sixties, Tommy started the first rock band in the U.S. Army (which included three other HHS classmates!) while serving in the West Point Band. Tommy has long ascribed his success in the music business to the excellent music education he received in the Hicksville Public School system... and is dedicating the show to the memory of Charles F. Gouse, who was the head Music Administrator in Hicksville for many years.

Friday's show will feature Tommy on keyboards, guitar and sax, and singing songs from the Bridge, fifties and sixties classics, an amazing Beatles tribute, even some jazz stylings and new original songs.

You'll also hear some inside stories about the many legendary performers he's worked with over the years.

Come join us in welcoming home Tommy Sullivan!
