Organ Update-6/17/18

Many of you are aware that there have been issues with the organ for quite sometime.  These became even worse after a power surge occurred in the Downtown Plaza area while one of the repair firms happened to be looking at it!  That power surge became a blessing, however!  Our insurance company has agreed to cover the majority of the cost for repairs.  The company we have chosen to repair the organ will be coming in the near future to take the organ in for repair, and we hope to have it restored and back for our 150th Celebration!
