Babylon Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer recently joined with fellow Town Board members and community leaders to dedicate the patch of land located at Mount Avenue and Essex Street in North Babylon in honor of the late Alice Cone, longtime president of the Belmont Lake Civic Association. More than 60 individuals came out for the dedication ceremony, including many of Alice’s friends and family members. At the ceremony, local officials such as Supervisor Schaffer and Assemblyman Robert Sweeney addressed the crowd and spoke of Alice’s devotion to her community. The beautification of the patch of land between Mount Avenue and Essex Street, now known as “Alice T. Cone Memorial Triangle,” was one of the many projects that Alice had worked tirelessly on to help better her community.
Alice T. Cone died March 19th, 2014 from complications of pancreatic cancer at the age of 74.
