Database Manager on November 28, 2010:

Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- Queen of Peace Parish was formed in 1995 by the merger of St. George and Our Lady of Perpetual Help parishes in Patton. The Felgemaker was originally installed in St. George R.C. No tonal alterations at the time of the mid 1960's electrification of the playing action. Unknown if the original action was mechanical or tubular to the retained slider chests. Original double rise reservoir has been replaced by one Durst reservoir. Early 1980's a Great III Mixture [12-15-19] was added to the Great on an electro-mechanical chest by Schendel.
