NEW PIANOS – Three new pianos for church and school have been purchased with memorial funds. Two of them have been placed here at church (main floor and balcony) to match up with the one downstairs. The older piano in the balcony and a new one are at school. Each room now has its own piano. Thanks to all who donated toward this memorial which is now completed.
