A huge thank you to our officers and board members who served last year, and to those who will serve this year! Your sacrifices - big and small - are noticed and appreciated!
Since summer is such a busy time and only a few were able to attend the August get-together, we have asked Bill Shull to repeat his presentation on his tour of the Hailun factory as the main feature at our September meeting. This meeting will take place on Monday evening, September 14, beginning at 7:30 pm, at Shull Piano (25041 Redlands Blvd in Loma Linda).
In October, our very own Randy Morton from Pacific Piano will give a program that he has titled, "What You Didn't Know Was Possible." What do you do when you come across an older piano with broken and/or missing action parts that are obsolete? Do you throw up your hands in dismay and tell the client that they have a piano that is ready for the dump? I sure hope not! Did you know that Pacific Piano has replacement parts for many "obsolete" pianos? In this class, Randy will share photos and history from inside the Tokiwa factory, showing how these replacement parts are made, and giving pointers on how to choose the correct parts for specific pianos.
Directions to Shull Piano: From the 10 Freeway in Loma Linda (just east of the 215 freeway), take the Tippecanoe/Anderson St exit (#74) and head south on Anderson St. Turn left (east) on Redlands Blvd which parallels the freeway. Shull piano is on the right directly across from Spreen Honda. Park in back or along the side of the store.
