NYC Council member James Vacca today gave the City Island Nautical Musem a grant for thousands of dollars. The funds will support the on going costs associated with the operation of the City Island Museum.

The photo opportunity and presentation was made to the Historical Society for $5,000. The money comes from the discretionary funds that Jimmy Vacca receives from the City Council for projects in his district and will go to fund general improvements at the museum.

Mr. Vacca should have earmarked those funds for air conditioners, which was what the late City Island Museum and Historical Society President, Captain Ed Sadller had requested several times before his recent death. City Island Images contacted Sargent Russ Schaller, who echoed the sane sentiments.
