As many of you know, the 6 year bug infestation is finally over. Therefore, we can finally begin this project by restoring and expanding our organ. The first step will be to RESTORE the current organ. Here are the restoration steps according to the Milnar Organ Company: 1) Remove all pipe work and return to their shop found in Eagleville, TN. 2) Thoroughly clean the organ.
3) Adjust all magnet springs and clean/replace magnet pallets. 4) Improve wiring at relay and lower organ. 5) Clean and straighten all pipework. 6) Repair pipes as needed. 7) Re-shim caps and stoppers. 8) Re-felt chimes strikers, adjust volume. 9) Re-install pipes and add bracing to pipe racks as needed. 10) Voice organ as needed. 11) Tune, and re-voice, at completion of project. Cost will be $32-35,000. Any financial help you can give for this project will be greatly appreciated.

June Health Observances
A daily dose of laughter may eliminate some of the stress that contributes to heart disease and other medical conditions. Dr. William Fry, of Stanford University, found out that laughing 200 times can burn as many calories as rowing intensely for 10 minutes. Let your silly inner child come out to play. Boost your immune system by having an old-fashioned belly laugh.
