Database Manager on May 04, 2017:

Updated by Barry Smith, who has heard or played the organ. In addition Barry Smith gave this as a source of information: I am the organ curator, and substitute organist.
Many mechanical and pipework improvements were completed in fall 1998 and winter 1999. In 2004, the facade pipes were stripped and repainted to match the original base color. As part of the extensive building renovations of the 2004-7 Capital Campaign, the sanctuary was air conditioned, the carpeting in the chancel and the rear of the sanctuary was removed, and in June 2007, the organ was thoroughly cleaned, with most pipes removed and washed in a cattle trough.
As of 2017, organ is in good condition and in regular use.
