The 1904 Cole Tracker organ is back in the music making business after being tuned this past week. 
The Potter Rathburn Organ Company traveled from Rhode Island to tune the Farmington area organs, mostly  in the local churches.  This is a trip they make twice per year.  Last spring, they stopped by the North Church to take a look at the organ and found it to be in pretty good shape.  "Play it" was the word.
The leather bellows do have a small tear, and there are still a few wood pipes, but that didn't deter from the tuning it received this week or its playability.  
Last spring, community folks donated the funds for the nearly $700 tuning.  Thank you all who want to see this beautiful instrument in action.
Next up-plans for a concert!  Stay tuned.
Organ is Tuned!
