A Message from the Dean

Greetings dear colleagues:

At our September Board Meeting, your Chapter colleagues reported on several initiatives. Former Deans Tom Taylor and Craig Dobbins reported, respectively, on the much needed revision of Chapter bylaws and the nomination process for next year’s officers. Ian Connolly, a senior at Central Catholic and grandson of Ann Labounsky, informed the Chapter of his Eagle Scout Project Plan to fundraise for and have built a continuo organ for Chapter use. Other officers proposed ideas for strengthening our mission in the region. There is much work to be done and we the leadership to accomplish much.

Chaz Bowers in his article presents our October Chapter meeting with guest, Russell Weisman. Russ will be in residence days before at St. Paul’s Episcopal where he will play the morning liturgy on October 20 and, at 4:00 pm that afternoon, performs at St. Paul’s in recital. His program includes works by J.S. Bach, Mendelssohn and be collaborates with soprano, Katy Williams, in Bach’s solo soprano Cantata BWV 52, Falsche Welt,dir trau ich nicht.
