Resident donates Wurlitzer organ to Warriors Hall

Published: Monday, June 3, 2013 at 10:24 AM.

Mary Mancini, a Friends member and former music storeowner, is having the organ evaluated by a trained technician, Friends President Rae Schwartz told the City Council at a May 21 meeting.

Schwartz said she would present the council with the technician's evaluation of the organ.

"If it's reasonable, we will certainly take it on and maintain it," Schwartz said.

Roy said if the organ is in good condition, it will enhance services offered by the auditorium.

Jackson said she hopes children might take organ lessons on it.

Her son, Chris, said the family is at peace knowing the instrument will keep making music.

"We were glad to see it go to someone who can use it," he said. "We were afraid with bad weather coming it would get ruined sitting on the front porch."
