Park Renamed in Honor of Late Community Activist

Sweet Hollow Park was renamed Monday in honor of Alissa Sue Taff, the dynamic civic leader who died Aug.14.

Establishing the park, now renamed as Alissa Sue Taff Sweet Hollow Park was one of her many projects, coming about as part of a complex three-way land swap that also led to the building of a Hindu temple and  space for The Club at Melville.

She spent many years as a civic leader in Melville, including serving on the Half Hollow Hills school board and as president of the Civic Association of Sweet Hollow.
