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

May 12th, 2020 Ethel Zaher enjoyed her 100th birthday Saturday, watching from her front lawn surrounded by family, as a cavalcade of well-wishers drove through her community and past her West Islip home.

Dozens of cars were adorned with banners, while others carried passengers holding celebratory signs. The cavalcade was coordinated by fellow West Islip resident, Anthony Musumici and included a SCPD escort.

Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter maintained social distance, as she presented Ethel with a Citation on behalf of the Islip Town Board. "Congratulations Ethel on this milestone. This turnout is a testament to how loved you are by your family, friends and your community," said the Supervisor.
