Nassau County is planning on closing down some museums. This is just a disgrace!!! How can a museum be closed. Tackapausha Museum is on that list. Please spread the word and fight to save this museum and all others set to close. Tackapausha just finished a HUGE renovation and uses volunteers. They are all set to open for the Fall Festival but who knows now. I have been going there since I was little and have so many great memories there and brought my son there when he was little before they closed for renovations. I was so excited to be able to bring my daughter there too.
Mentalist, Michael Lee will be performing at Tackapausha from Oct 28 - Dec 11. Call up and order your tickets to show Nassau County that we will not stand for this!!!
This is what the Wantagh Patch reported. Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano announced Wednesday that as a part of his “Fix Nassau Now” budget for 2012, the county will be looking to close county-operated museums that do not generate revenue. When pressed for specifics, Mangano admitted that the Tackapausha Museum could be among the first to go.
Call your local officials and/or email Ed Mangano, County Executive http://www.nassaucountyny.gov/agencies/CountyExecutive/index.html.
