Organ Fundraising Our beloved 134-year-old Hook & Hastings organ is in need of some serious repairs, so a special fundraising effort has been started to raise the $35,000 required to restore this historic instrument.  The first goal is to raise $10,000 by the end of 2017.  If you are interested in donating, please pay by check (payable to “St. Paul’s Hopkinton”) or cash – making sure to note “organ fund” on the check or envelope.  A display showing the current status of the fundraising is in the front entrance.   There is also a brochure available that features the history of the organ, the repairs needed, and details of the fundraising effort.  If you have any questions, please see Karen Scheffler.
