Show Love for Returning Troops: Help Decorate W. Sayville-Sayville

It's time to tie a ribbon and give a proper welcome home to the soldiers.

There is a grassroots efforts to welcome home troops from service and West Sayville and Sayville residents are being asked to help out by decorating trees and poles throughout the communities with patriotic ribbons.

The effort, spearheaded by a resident wishing to remain anonymous, has the support of A.C. Moore, the arts supply store, which is helping out by providing discount ribbons via a coupon.

In a letter to Patch, the resident states the goal is full community involvement and to have the communities decorated fully by Memorial Day weekend, kicking off as of this Saturday

The color scheme is red/white/blue and/or yellow ribbons. Residents are advised to use weather resistant bows and to position them as high as possible on trees and poles. Small signs welcoming home soldiers and thanking them for service are also welcome.

The decorations will remain through the 4th of July holiday hopefully, states the letter writer, after which it is hoped residents will do their part to take down the decorations.
