Database Manager on November 29, 2017:

Updated by Harold Ulmer, who maintains the organ.
S.D.G. Pipe Organs was asked to visit the church to investigate a mechanical problem which apparently "healed itself" before we arrived. Unsure what had been done by Cannarsa in 1966 but the organ is in remarkable shape for its age - plays but needs to be tuned - will be tuned late 2017 by S.D.G. Last serviced in 1995. Presbyterian church also has same story except parts removed and never returned - told that builder (Cannarsa?) went out of business. Pedal is tubular pneumatic. Specification to follow next visit.
