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

December 5th, 2019 The lawn at Brookwood Hall played host to the 6th Annual Festival of Trees Wednesday, as community groups, service organizations, Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter and members of the Town Board turned out to decorate 40 Christmas trees.

The 5'-6' trees were adopted for $35, and decorated with special themes meaningful to each group. Proceeds benefit the Islip Arts Council. Representatives from Southside Hospital, Women of West Islip and YES to name just a few, turned out to decorate their trees.

"The Festival of Trees is surely a sign that the holidays are upon us, and it immediately puts you in the Christmas spirit," said Supervisor Carpenter.

Hot chocolate and a DJ kept spirits high as temperatures began to drop. Actors with the CM Performing Arts Center performed Frozen for the crowd. Tickets to Frozen at CM Performing Arts are available through December 26th.

Joining Supervisor Carpenter were Deputy Commissioner of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Deirdre Whalberg; Islip Arts Council Executive Director, Lynda Moran; Town Councilman James O'Connor and staff; Suffolk County Legislator Steve Flotteron and Community Volunteer, Liz Mayott.
