Islip Friends of the Arts needs you!

Islip Friends of the Arts began as Friends of Music in the mid-1970’s.  The group offered support to the Music Department, assisting backstage during the musical each year, as well as set up and clean up for Sentimental Journey (today this event is The Blue Note Café).

The Islip Friends of the Arts core group has been consistently made up of 3 or 4 people since the mid ‘90’s.  The last few years MaryK Schmalacker is our Treasurer, Myrill Solaski is our Vice President and myself, Barbara Engels, President.
