Inscription.  
From 1957 to 1979 Norm Hoff created a youth activity program in this park. Known as Hoff's Park, many "Heights" youths would come during the summer months to take part in athletic activities, games and crafts. Starting in 1978 many of the same youths began to assemble here on Thanksgiving morning to celebrate Mr. Hoff and the traditional cross town rivalry football game against Haddonfield. Known as the Hoff's Park Tailgaters we will continue to gather here to remember Mr. Hoff with many rousing chants of

Yo Hoff!
