    Mayowood House Tours will take place, and we will once again be signing up to provide seasonal music for these tours. These tours happen on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout November. This is a great opportunity for our chapter to be in contact with many people from many walks, both near and far. A signup will be coming through email and at the next workshop (Oct. 13). There was some question about whether these would happen or not, both due to rehabilitation on the house and the condition of the organ air plant.  But all is a go, so we hope to fill many of the slots. Please be alert to chances to sign up for this.

    The final event for the 2003-2004 season will be a pipe organ concert given by Peter DuBois of New York. This event, sponsored by the Chapter and The Congregational Church, is also in celebration of Rochester's Sesquicentennial year. Mr. DuBois will bring greetings from William A. Johnson, Jr., mayor of Rochester, New York to our mayor, Ardell Brede.

    The cornerstone of the program will feature the newly enlarged 3/35 Reuter pipe organ upon which Mr. DuBois will present a stunning program.
