Year-End Meeting and Social:
Mike Foley reports that Foley-Baker is looking to hire some pipe organ tech-trainees. If you’re naturally mechanical and love the instrument, this is your chance for a possible added or change of career. Wages and working conditions are good. There is travel and some long days. Needless to say, they’re also interested in people who already have some training under their belt. Their headquarters is in Tolland. Contact Mike at 860-463-0618 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
