Donators could be found who made 13 cakes. € 125 net proceeds in total were taken as a donation. We thank all guests for their coming and and all helpers of the Society for the Promotion of the historical Eberhard Friedrich Walcker Organ who made it possibly to make  the the afternoon coffee happen. A warm thank-you also to the donators of the cakes and a not less warm thank-you to the Protestant parish for helping us to use its premises.

Private donations let "donation barometer" climb!

Recently  the vicarage received two private donations with 500,- € and 1000,- € respectively in favor of the organ restoration.

We quite cordially thank them even if the donators do not want to be called by name! The receipt of these donations, just right after the summer vacation, spurs on the active members of our Society for the Promotion of the historical Eberhard Friedrich Walcker Organ to speed up the organ project further with full strength.
