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

February 14th, 2020 This year marks the 10th Anniversary the DiPalma family of West Islip lost a family member to suicide.

In the aftermath of that tragedy, the DiPalmas created P.S. I Love You Day, with a mission to bring awareness to the importance of mental health and decrease bullying. They strongly believe that by educating students earlier about mental health, the conversation will be easier to discuss and students will be able to recognize when they or others around them need help.

On the second Friday of every February, communities wear purple to stand up against bullying, help end depression, foster kindness and create a welcoming environment. PS I Love You Day is a reminder to educate others that mental health is just as important as physical health.

We hope that on this day you walk around your community, school, or work office and see a sea of purple. We hope that you hear nothing but positive messages that make you feel special, loved, and remind you, that you are never alone
