For the first time ever, the Village of Islandia held a drive-through Christmas tree lighting on the grounds of Village Hall on December 5. Families had the opportunity to take pictures of themselves in front of the tree and with Mrs. Claus, and children dropped off their letters to Santa in the mailbox. They later drove around Village Hall and were met by village employees and local Boy Scouts, who gave out gifts to the good boys and girls of Islandia.
