Database Manager on October 30, 2004:

Is this St. Julian Friary, 333 E. Paulding Rd (in 1987)? From St. Pius X R. C. in Cambridge, WI. The Cambridge church basically traded with the Fort Wayne Friary for an Op 2 Wolf or Wilhelm. Wahl moved both organs in an organ transplant weekend. The five stop was too small for the church, the Friary was down to three people and were moving into a house, hence the trade. The 5 stop in the house was too loud and was sold to Bangor Seminary in Maine. Wahl did not move and no longer knows the status of the organ. Alan Laufmann said they were just using the pipes on a new chest and the old chest was going to be used as a voicing machine by the service man who moved the organ.
