As a non wolf hunter/trapper, your support and membership is a great way for you to directly support those who are out there busting their butt to get the job done, ensuring quality Elk and other Game populations, while many of us are at home enjoying our families and watching football. These guys have saved more than 60,000 Elk by having removed more than 430 Idaho Wolves to date! Come enjoy a great night out while supporting the Foundation for Wildlife Management!

Historic Pipe Organ Dedication Recital @ Community United Methodist Church
Nov 11 @ 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm

Community United Methodist Church invites the community to attend dedication events celebrating the installation of the renovated historic pipe organ. The organ will be officially dedicated and heard for the first time during the 9:00 a.m. Traditional Worship Service. A Dedication Pipe Organ Recital, open to the public will be at 2pm. The church is fully handicapped assessible. Off-street parking is available

Performers at the 9am worship service will include Cynthia Marlette and Mark Haberman, organists for the church. Long time community organist, Byrl Cinnamon, will join Marlette and Haberman for the afternoon Dedicatory Recital. Additionally, for the recital, two commissioned works will be featured, including an anthem that will be performed by the church’s Chancel Choir under the direction of Bill Jaquette. Sheila Schindler, soprano saxophonist, will join Marlette on one composition for organ and saxophone. There is no admission fee.

The historic organ was installed in the congregation’s previous building, located at 7th and Wallace, in 1908 and included 640 individual pipes. It was rebuilt and enlarged to 1,267 pipes in 1978. When the congregation built the new facility in 1994, the organ was reinstalled in that setting. The 2018 renovation, by Marceau & Associates of Seattle, Washington, afforded an opportunity to further enhance the instrument’s bold, extraordinary sound by increasing its size to 1,581 pipes.
