Jim Stettner on April 03, 2022:

From the 'History' page of the church website, *"Also during Mr. Graham's pastorale, on May 25-26, 1916, a pipe-organ was installed in the front of the sanctuary, one-half being paid for by subscription (mostly from former residents), the other half by Mr. Carnegie. The organists have been: Gladys (Howard) Abbott, Hazel (Mills) Fox, Ivy Thurston, Stanley Fox, Helen (Lang) Deanis, Mary Agnes (McNeil) Walton, and, at the time of this writing, Linda Burnham of North Rumford.

Hyland Reed painted the pipe organ pipes in 1954 and that was the only time that they have ever been done since the organ was installed. He took them down and carried them over to his home which was near-by. He personally mixed the paint to match the original shade."
