Updated through online information from John Igoe. -- The organ was recently installed at St. Francis Episcopal Church, Holden, Mass. From the online Holden Daily Voice: "The church had to pay to restore, rebuild and transport the organ, but brought joy to the people from that congregation and then to this congregation."
