Database Manager on May 01, 2013:

New console for the existing organ. Identified by Jeff Scofield, based on information learned from a conversation with Roger Colby. -- The contract was for the addition of a new console to replace one damaged beyond repair by fire. During a sanctuary renovation, a worker left combustible items in the light can right above the console. When the lights were turned on, the contents of the can caught fire and eventually fell through onto the console, which caught fire. Colby also added about 50 Walker stops.
