Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter Joined Local Elks in the 2016 Youth in Government Day

Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter was recently joined by local middle-school students at the beginning of the 2016 Youth in Government Day, which is sponsored by Elks Lodge 2533 of Islip. Supervisor Carpenter introduced the students to the basics of town government, before answering questions on her job and the role that government plays in everyday life.

After these brief remarks, the students were led on a tour of several Town facilities. In the past, students have visited the Recycling Center and Waste Energy Facility, and this year they were given a tour of the Town’s Compost Facility in Ronkonkoma. The students watched as yard waste and other organic material was converted into compost and mulch, which is then sold to companies and given out to residents at designated Town sites.
