Jun 5 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
SOLD OUT!!!  The museum will feature a special program almost 35 years to the day that former president Richard Nixon made a very unlikely visit to Landing, New Jersey. In addition to taking a look at that unusual day in June 1989, we will hear from lifetime NJ resident Bob Bostock. A former aide to Dean Gallo, Christine Todd Whitman, and Rodney Frelinghuysen, Bostock will talk about his own unlikely journey from teenage volunteer in the 1972 campaign to working closely with the former president in 1990 in telling the story of the Nixon presidency at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library. Truly a special evening! Ticketing will go live on line for this event on Wednesday, May 15, at 7:00pm.

“Saturday Night at the Movies With Joe Cook” @ The Palace Theatre
Nov 2 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

One of America’s greatest stars of the early 20th century, Joe Cook did most of performing in Vaudeville and on Broadway. As a result, he is largely unknown today. Sixty-five years after his death we will discover the talent that caused legendary New York Times critic Brooks Atkinson to write, “Next to Leonardo da Vinci, Joe Cook is the most versatile man known to recorded times.” A resident of Lake Hopatcong for most of his stardom, we will see Joe in a host of performances as well as seeing him and his family at their legendary cottage, Sleepless Hollow.
