On behalf of Garden State Theatre Organ Society and on behalf of New York Theatre Organ Society, Michael Cipolletti and John Valentino, the respective officers are inviting the memberships to come together for a celebration of the season and a listen to the Bob Balfour Memorial Wonder Morton at the fabulous Loew's Jersey Theatre.

The theatre is available on Saturday, December 8 and through the cooperation of the management and Bob Martin, we have arranged to use the building.  Members are asked to bring snack food and/or sweets and drinks to share.  The party and open console will begin at 1:00 and last until everyone has had a chance to play and  we are tired of listening.  We have it on good word that Lew Williams will be in town and we might encourage him to play for us.  

This is a short notice invitation but we don't want to pass up an opportunity to gather at Loew's with members of our neighboring chapter and to hear the Wonder Morton.
