NOTES
The organ was originally installed in the church's 1927 edifice and was moved once within
that building. The chamber had a wooden grille front containing a display of 5 gold-painted
dummy facade pipes.

When the present facility was built, the organ was moved and installed in what is now the
parish hall. It was placed in a free-standing chamber on the left side with the original
grille for the tone opening. The console sat beside the chamber.

When the present sanctuary was completed in 1976, the organ was moved once more to its final
location in a chamber at the front of the sanctuary. The original grille with dummy pipes was
not retained this time. A second tone opening with expression shutters was installed at the
left side of the sanctuary where the console was placed so that the organist would also be
able to directly hear the volume level. No tonal or mechanical changes were made other than
the added shutters.

In June 1994, Meadway & Stettner Pipe Organs of Monroe, Washington releathered all of the
console pneumatics as well as the original 1947 shutter engines and primary.
