vate and present programs to the general public in an attempt to educate
the community on all issues and opinions within the Hamlet of Hicksville

uals  and  organizations  of  such  noble  aims  and accomplishments are
brought to our attention, they should be celebrated  and  recognized  by
all the citizens of the great State of New York; now, therefore, be it
