Interested in owning a piece of Bluffton church musical history?

The organ in the “old” St. Mary’s Catholic Church could be yours. It has rested in a garage since the mid-1960s and needs a new home, according to its current caretaker, Betty Pakosz of Sylvania.

Older Bluffton residents will identify Betty as the daughter of Rita Hankish, who grew up in Bluffton, over a half-century past.

This summer Betty contacted the Icon, inquiring if we could assist finding a new home of the organ.
