Cross Repair begun!

The Saturday before Easter, a bright blue afternoon for taking down the dangling cross.

THE STEEPLE CROSS AFTER HURRICANE SANDY

Roy Riley and Mark Clements arrived with Mark’s truck.

Mark had to tell Roy how to operate the boom.

Roy starts the ride up.

Slowly, adjusting so he won’t knock the steeple….

He reaches the top.. The cross is loose enough to pull off.

The ride down begins.  He can see water in every direction.  Can he remember which knob controls which part of the boom?

With Roy down safely, Mark puts the truck to bed.

Mark Clements on his truck. THANK YOU, MARK!

Look for the next installment:  Repairing the Old Copper Cross.

Local Talent fixes rattle!

Keeping the pipes in order.

Bob Hungerford knows everything!

On a cold February afternoon, Bob Conway, Bob Hungerford and Clark Goff met to try to correct the rattle in  the organ pipes when certain tones were played. Bob Hungerford has worked on  pipes before.

They succeeded in tightening  some of the fastening by which the pipes attach to the pins in the case and that seems to have done the trick.

Christmas Flea!

Ann Deitrich and Annette Anthony put on a Christmas Flea at the Community Center.  It was a great success!

Friday 15th, center pieces made at Church.

Kim had everything organized and beautiful.

Saturday, Katy and Marilyn manning the church table.

Kathy and Emily show Kim's work.

Oh, there were dozens of other vendors there too.

September 30 Organ Concert

After a beautiful dedication ceremony at morning worship, 7 Island organists showed off the new Russell Pipe Organ.  Stephen and Carole Russell were in the standing room only audience to hear the fabulous sounds.  Phil Dietterich was the morning speaker and the expert member of the Organ Committee.  Chilmark Church is indebted to him for much:  For inspiring us with his words and music, for organizing the wonderful concert, and for composing a beautiful piece of music, “Chilmark Autumn” which he introduced at the afternoon concert.
