A Message from the Supervisor

“Welcome to Islip, the 3rd largest town in New York State, but with an endearing small town feel. We are so proud of our town…our beaches, golf courses, marinas, parks, housing opportunities for all, businesses, industrial parks, healthcare and educational institutions including our own Islip MacArthur Airport that provides many job opportunities. I sincerely hope you find this website helpful.” Angie

Local First Responders stand in formation underneath an American Flag surround the 9/11 Ceremony

September 12th, 2022 Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter was joined by members of the Town Board and elected officials on the federal, state, county and local levels, at the Town's annual 9-11 Memorial Ceremony Sunday.

"I would like to thank each and every one of you for joining with us today, at what has become an important tradition here in Islip, and a part of the fabric of our community. We gather together each year as residents of this Town, neighbors, and as citizens of this great nation, to commemorate the lives of all those lost in in the 9-11 attacks, and recognize and remember the 90 Town of Islip residents who perished. A heartfelt thank you, and all of our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of their loved ones.

Also, a deep appreciation to the representatives of all of our First Responders, who are here with us today. We are forever indebted to our First Responders—the men and women of such tremendous courage, who put themselves in peril. Many of whom were lost saving the lives of their fellow man, and many others who have lost their lives due to post 9/11 adverse health effects and others still suffering today, both physically and mentally.

Although 21 years have passed since that fateful day, we continue to mourn, honor and remember the lives of those lost during these attacks, especially our brothers and sisters from the Town of Islip.

"We have placed 90 flags around the 9-11 memorial, one flag representing each life. Six years ago, the Town of Islip was fortunate to receive a piece of Commemorative Steel from the North Tower. I would again like to recognize all those who so generously donated their time and talents, to create this lasting monument. This piece of commemorative steel will stand as a poignant and solemn reminder of September 11. Let us, as witnesses to history, vow again right here and now to never forget the horror of that day."—Supervisor, Angie Carpenter
