As previously reported, members of the East Islip Community Chamber of Commerce will be hosting their big annual Halloween family fundraiser at Shandon Court

“The event raises money for a better community, for everybody who lives or works here,” Ryan Gillies, a chamber member and insurance salesman with the James F. Sutton Agency, had previously told

“We’ll have face painting, kid’s games, a photo booth, mummy making,” and more, he said.


Happy Halloween from!
