New Musary Pickups….

In Uncategorized on August 30, 2010 at 5:26 pm

A special thanks to Ellen and the entire Buckley family for their recent donation of a Piano and Viola!  Both the instruments are in fantastic shape and will hopefully make many Musary patrons very happy for years to come!  Our deepest thanks!  We couldn’t wait to try out the new stuff, as you can tell 😉

The trip had a few hiccups, but once we figured out the lift gate for the truck it was smooth sailing.  The instruments found their way to their new temporary home at The Musary with no problems.   Now, they are ready for lending!  If you are in the need for a piano, organ, or just about any other instrument please let us know and we will do our best to help you out.

In other news, the most recent fundraiser was a tremendous success.  We raised just about $2,500 thanks to Matt Blanchard at 15 Walnut, and the entire Potter family.   This money went directly to helping us file for our 501(c)3 tax exempt status (which has been about a year in the making), and to the purchase of some new instruments that were requested.  We’ll be sure to post more  as information comes along.
