In upholding its mission to advance the general welfare and prosperity of the Farmingville area so that its citizens and its business community shall prosper, the Farmingville Hills Chamber of Commerce, Inc, is continuing with Deck the Poles, our holiday lamppost decorating event.

We are looking for volunteers to decorate the lampposts along County Road 16 in Farmingville.

The Farmingville Hills Chamber of Commerce provides all of the decorations (garland, lights, red bows) and volunteers are required to provide their own ladder to decorate a lamppost. The Chamber will be distributing the decorations in Triangle Park between 10:30 am and 12:30 pm.

Volunteers must sign-up in advance by filling out the form below and will receive further instructions prior to the event. Students can earn community service credits. Within a few hours Farmingville is transformed into a holiday wonderland for all to enjoy.

Advance Sign-up is Required


2. Each person/family will be allocated only one lamppost. Requests for more than one lamppost will granted based on availability the week prior.
3. If you have extended family members or a group of friends who want their own lamppost they must sign-up separately. Our system requires a different name and email address for each request.
4. If you wish to decorate a specific lamppost please note it on the form.
5. If you wish to decorate next to other families/friends, please also note that in the form.
6. Volunteers may only decorate lampposts on Sunday, December 5, from 10:30 am to 2:00 pm.
7. We’d like to accommodate as many people as we can so we ask that you finish decorating by 12:30 p.m. if possible.
8. Volunteers are NOT permitted to add decorations to lampposts. We are striving for a uniform, consistent appearance so please don’t add anything to the pole that isn’t provided to you by the Chamber of Commerce.
9. All volunteers who sign-up will be contacted in late November. You must confirm your participation and at that time you will be notified of your meeting time and location. We ask that you reply to us as quickly as possible when contacted. We are all volunteers and we are trying to accommodate as many requests as possible. Your promptness helps facilitate this process.
10. IMPORTANT: After submitting your request you will receive an automated email confirming your online submission. If you don’t get the email confirmation your submission has not been received so either try again or contact us immediately via email. We are not responsible for submissions not received. Note regarding requests: we will try to accommodate all requests but we can’t guarantee all will be granted. Some volunteers will not get the location requested. Location requests are assigned based on when we receive your submission, not based on where you decorated in prior years. If you do not get a specific lamppost we ask that you remember this is about community and volunteerism, not the location of a lamppost. We greatly appreciate your advance cooperation. Thank you for volunteering.
