Twelfth Night Parties across Region IV

The Twelfth Night party . .  what a wonderful tradition! As Councillor of Region IV, I am privileged to receive newsletters from all of our chapters. So many exciting programs . . . . so many energetic members! Many chapters hosted celebratory gatherings for "Twelfth Night" -- I really enjoyed this picture from the party hosted by the East Carolina held on January 8, 2010, at St. Timothy's Parish Hall in Greenville, North Carolina. What a great group of AGO-ers!

Successful Pedals, Pipes, and Pizza hosted by the Ocala (FL) chapter

On Sunday, January 9, 2011, at 3:00 PM, over 50 students and parents arrived at First United Methodist Church, Ocala, Florida for a Pipes, Pedals, and Pizza (PPP) event. Hosted by the Ocala FL Chapter of the American Guild of Organists, the PPP was a resounding (FFF) success! The 90-minute program included a brief history of the organ, a demonstration of the sounds of the organ, and a tour of the organ chambers. Ocala AGO members Wayne Earnest (Dean), David Freudenberg, Larry Kerner, and James Don Pruitt, and were key organizers of the event. 

Congratulations to the Ocala Chapter for sharing their joy and excitement about the "King of Instruments!"
