Today the Town of Huntington voted to name the Dix Hills Park after Dix Hills Fire Commissioner/ Ex Chief Phil Tepe and former Town Supervisor and former Assemblywoman Toni Tepe.
I could never begin to explain what a powerful positive force they were in building this Town and helping this community.
They will be sorely missed, however, their legacy lives on, and we hope as you and your families enjoy the park, that you keep them in your thoughts and prayers. ￼
