Database Manager on April 03, 2011:

The Bombarde division was added at this time, as well as a new console with German ivory keyboards and English ivory drawknobs. The console was updated to solid state action by Jim Lauck in 1993. The organ was removed in July, 2000, in preparation for the congregation's new Austin-Allen organ. Many of the pipes were retained, revoiced, and reused in the new instrument.
