Nassau County Delia DeRiggi-Whitton (D - Glen Cove) thanked her Legislature colleagues for facilitating the delivery of $16,000 in funding to the Friends of Garvies Point Museum and Preserve. 
Under the updated terms of an intermunicipal agreement approved recently, grant dollars will be applied toward expanding storage in the main laboratory for geological collections, fire-safe storage for archeological site files, and storage for archaeological collections in the lower level caged collections room. 
“Through their ongoing preservation efforts, organizations like Friends of the Garvies Point Museum serve the public by ensuring the connection to our shared history remains strong,” Legislator DeRiggi-Whitton said. “I thank my colleagues for voting to support a museum that serves such a vital role in research, scholarship and education.”
