Our Meetings so far this year! 

SEPTEMBER: Ocean Grove:  Our trip on 8/22/16 to Ocean Grove was terrific.  Gordon Turk's two hour presentation held over 50 organists and guests' (from Northern, Metro, and Central chapters) attention as he told the history of the organ, and then brilliantly improvised for 15 minutes showing off the beautiful colors of the Hope-Jones organ.  The dinner for 37 of us at Stella Marina was equal to the task of following up on Gordon's presentation.  Need I mention the weather?

OCTOBER:  Organ Crawl / Architecture Tour:
