The Deanís Message September 2014


Dear Members and Friends,


Welcome to another year with the AGO. It has been an honor to serve as the

dean these past two years and I am equally honored to serve another two years.

I believe in the cause of the American Guild of Organists and I am especially

grateful to be associated with the Utah Valley Chapter. I am grateful for all the

time, talent, and hard work that is donated by our board, members, and friends.

The organization runs effectively through the combined efforts of many. Thank

you so much!


We have two new goals for this coming year which focus on interdenominational

outreach and choral-organ education. You will see that we have a couple of events

planned to help us in our efforts in these areas. I encourage you to look at the chapter

calendar and plan now for these events.


As part of the interdenominational outreach, throughout the year we will be

contacting the churches in the valley to offer our support and to see how we can

work together. In addition, we will be putting together a substitute list that can

be accessed online, by the general public, at our website. If you would like to

have your name and contact info on the list, please email DeeAnn Stone.


I am very excited to share that we are in the process of constructing a new

chapter website. We have a committee of five individuals who have been

working with a professional webpage designer to create the new website. Our

old website has served us well, but I think that you will find the new website to

be even more user friendly and a greater resource. It is anticipated that the new

site will be up and running in a month. We will let you know when the grand

unveiling takes place.


Our Opening Social will be held at St. Maryís Episcopal Church and Provo

Community United Church of Christ, on Saturday, September 20, at 6:30 pm

(note the date change!). This activity will be a wonderful opportunity to eat and

socialize together, as well as play the organs in these two churches. Bring a

friend! For additional information, please see page 4 of this newsletter.


If you would like to help with any of the events, have ideas for future events,

or needs that we can help with, please let us know. I look forward to another

wonderful year!
