On December 1, Village of Islandia residents came out to celebrate the holidays at the village’s thirteenth annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony. “Joe the Singing Bus Driver” performed under the big tent as he played guitar and sang holiday songs, while residents sang along and enjoyed hot cocoa, coffee and cookies. After the tree was lit, Santa Claus came down to give out toys to the good little boys and girls of Islandia. The children also received candy canes, courtesy of Mrs. Claus.
