Islandia residents turned out for the 5th annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony on December 4. Residents stayed warm under the big tent and enjoyed cookies and hot cocoa as “Joe the Singing Bus Driver” played guitar and sang holiday songs. Santa Claus hitched a ride with the Central Islip Fire Department inside their fire truck and came to distribute toys to the good boys and girls, with help from Santa’s elves. Santa also posed for pictures with the children, who also received candy canes, courtesy of Mrs. Claus.
