Database Manager on May 02, 2015:

Altered and relocated existing organ. Identified by James R. Stettner, using information from this web site: http://www.alderorgan.blogspot.com.
The website, "Canadian Reformed Organs" for its Aldersgate CRC page states, "The organ we acquired was built by the late Mr. Hugo Pilon (he passed away about a year ago on November 30th) of Toronto. He was a long-time organist in the Bethel Canadian Reformed Church and took a leading role over the years in installing and maintaining the pipe organ in that church.
At the same time, as a hobby project purely for his own enjoyment and use, he built the organ in his home during the 70's and 80's. Over time, it grew into a "large two manual instrument of some 34 ranks and over 2000 pipes, divided over Great, Swell and Pedal." (quoting from a report on the organ).
The Aldergrove church has been using the services of Northern Organs based in Hamilton, ON to consult with on the removal of the organ as well as consultations on the re-installation in the new church building. This company knew this organ as well as the builder."
