February 26th, 2019 – Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter joined with local Chamber Presidents and restaurant owners to discuss the Town's Birthday Restaurant Week celebration, marking the continued celebration of Islip's founding 335 years ago.

Islip Birthday Restaurant week will kick-off April-May in Sayville. Participating restaurants will offer a menu item commemorating the Town's founding in 1683. Menu items will vary among restaurants within designated hamlets throughout the year. The Town launched its year-long 335th Birthday Celebration November 29th, 2018 with the lighting of the Town Hall Cupola blue.

Earlier this month, Supervisor Carpenter conducted a meeting with Chamber Presidents and board members from East Islip, West Islip, Ronkonkoma, Holbrook and Bay Shore, to discuss matters relevant to small businesses. "Small businesses in the Town of Islip have access to a network of vibrant and forward thinking chambers of commerce. As a former small business owner I value firsthand, the relationship between businesses, local government and our chambers, and with that, will continue to meet with our chamber presidents and their boards, to ensure that we're working together to keep Main St. thriving in the Town of Islip," said Supervisor Carpenter.

At the Restaurant Week meeting, Supervisor Carpenter was joined by Eileen Tyzner, Sayville Chamber President; Rick Ammirati, Holbrook Chamber President; Mike McElwee, local restaurant owner; Deirdre Whalberg, Deputy Commissioner, Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs, and Caroline Smith, Director, Media Relations. .
