Islip’s portion of Ronkonkoma now has its own welcome sign.

Town officials on Saturday celebrated the installation of the first-ever Ronkonkoma sign at Johnson and Ocean avenues.

The project added trees, landscaping and signage to show visitors they’re on the Islip side of Ronkonkoma, a hamlet that also straddles Brookhaven.

Flanked by shrubs, the red wooden sign also displays information about upcoming civic meetings.

Councilwoman Trish Bergin Weichbrodt and other civic leaders held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Saturday morning.
