Islip Town Councilman Steve Flotteron Announces Plans for a New Memorial Playground at West Islip Beach

Islip, NY - Islip Town Councilman Steve Flotteron will host an open forum to discuss plans for a new playground at West Islip Beach, on Tuesday, April 22, 7:30 p.m., at the West Islip Fire Department, located at 309 Union Boulevard.

The playground is part of ongoing refurbishment efforts at West Islip Beach that will pay tribute to Madeleine Hsu, one of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings. The playground will be constructed by The Sandy Ground Project, a volunteer organization made up of firefighters, police officers, teachers and other volunteers, who have endeavored to erect 26 playgrounds in honor of the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy, in the tri-state area that were devastated by Super Storm Sandy, including West Islip Beach, where much damage was sustained at the beautiful beach and park.

Councilman Flotteron will be joined by Bill Lavin of The Sandy Ground Project, as well as Islip Park’s officials to discuss the renovation and playground project, and welcomes interested individuals to attend the meeting to learn how they can get involved in this unique project to rebuild West Islip Beach, while also memorializing the life of Madeleine Hsu.
