Database Manager on May 10, 2013:

Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- Console damaged beyond repair February 2012. A painter left some material in an overhead can light and when the lights were turned on, it caught fire. The contents fell down on the organ console and it caught fire. Nothing else in the church was damaged, but the console was ruined. Replaced by new R. A. Colby console in December 2012, at which time they added nearly fifty Walker digital voices.
