Islip Art Museum

The Town of Islip is facing budget crunch time and it appears that one of the things on the chopping block is.... the ENTIRE STAFF OF THE ISLIP ART MUSEUM!

Kudos to Vera Kavanaugh for attending the Town Board Meeting and speaking up!
The issue was tabled for a later meeting..... which could mean one of two things:
they hope we will forget about it,
we have another chance to talk to them!

Let's all rally and get to that meeting-- I suggest we ALL wear the same color, red maybe, as a show of solidarity---
As son as I find out when that next meeting is I will let you know!
