Well here goes, amidst divorce proceedings on top of all else.

Yesterday’s transpirations on all of my responsibility fronts led to a resolution ~ all is well and will be well.

Lois Phillips, member at large, and I, assisted by Melissa Craig-Morse, Father Matt and Carol Menke, attempted to resurrect the Twilight Organ Series at Church of the Incarnation in Santa Rosa over the
past two months. The bottom line was a no plus a future perhaps just two days ago. Although we are disappointed, we are tremendously encouraged that the First Presbyterian Church of Santa Rosa is going
 to pick up the ball and run with it as is possible, thanks to Bob Brasier and Fay Manes. It is very nice to have confidently turned this important matter over to them for restoration and relocation.

Although Philip, longtime friend and colleague, was very excited about the possibility of doing a special Franck session at another church with a pipe organ, for inclusiveness, it simply was not possible
to prepare thoroughly within the time frame remaining, given his other responsibilities in “retirement”,
including an “interim” organist and choirmaster music position at Trinity Episcopal Church.
The next event, immediately below, is REAGO sponsored.
