Tuesday, April 13


I hope you, like I, are living in the afterglow of Bach’s birthday celebration on Sunday, March 21. Almost 200 people stayed with us in all three churches. I especially want to thank Jim Gardner, Henry Kihlken, Charles Scroggy, Randy Ruthsatz, and Tim Claubaugh for preparing and presenting their Bach music to an appreciative audience. Everywhere I have gone, people have told me how very much they enjoyed the afternoon. We may be a small AGO Chapter, but we have provided the community something of musical value and proved to ourselves there is reason to continue our existence.

The Lorain Co. Chapter has announced its annual student recital at Finney Chapel, Oberlin College, on Sunday, April 25, starting at 4:00 p.m. Several of our members have attended and enjoyed each progam. If you wish to stay for dinner at the Oberlin Inn, phone your reservation by Monday, April 19 to Marty Bruner at 440-322-9749. Dinner cost is $19, but the student recitals are free.

Nancy Russell, Ohio District Convener, has scheduled a meeting of Ohio Chapter Deans at the Bunn-Minnick Pipe Organ Co. in Columbus on Saturday, April 24. I expect to attend since I will already be in Columbus that weekend for alumni reunions at Capital University. If there is something significant to report, you will learn of it in our conversations or my next newsletter,

I pray continuing blessings to you as you lead God’s people in worship.

-Laura Stellhorn, Dean

Due to a hacker hacking into our email account, I have had to change our email account to: agosandusky@gmail.com . I have not been able to delete the old account because the hacker changed the password on that account. If you receive any emails from the “YAHOO” account, delete them without opening them. Do NOT delete emails that come from the “GMAIL” account. You might want to “spam” the “YAHOO” account. If you decide to go the spaming route, please be sure that you spam “yahoo” and NOT “gmail.”

I apologize for this inconvenience. This is the second time within a year that our email account was hacked into. I hope changing providers will take care of this problem.
