My friend Luisa Gladu of Prospect United Methodist Church is taking on the noble task of trying to raise money to fix a pipe organ that has not only been in the church for more than 50 years, but was a gift of the late William Sesssions.
Here's what she sent me about it:
Member of Prospect United Methodist Church are trying to raise money to repair their pipe organ, which needs a $60,000 refurbishment, according to Luisa Gladu of the organ restoration committee.
The organ was a gift to the church by the late William E. Sessions. The organ was dedicated in October 1958 and has been part of the services at the 175-year-old church for more than half a century.
There will be a benefit dinner and concert on Saturday, May 22nd at 5:30 p.m. at the church. Tickets are $20.
The dinner will be roast pork loin with all the fixings, and the concert following afterwards will be given by the award-winning H S Liederkranz Mens Chorus from Thomaston.
