Pipe Organ at Boomeria

William Visscher, Super Organist!
   William Visscher was born in northern New York state. Moving to northeastern Pennsylvania at the age of 8 provided opportunities to start piano studies and a chance to hear a pipe organ in church. Piano lessons soon led to playing for Army Chapel services which eventually led to organ lessons in high school.

   Organ studies continued with Roger Rietberg at Hope College, Holland, Michigan, and later with James Boeringer and piano study with Georganna Kresel, both at Susquehanna University, Selinsgrove, PA, from where he received his Bachelor of Music Degree in Music Education.

   William has worked in the pipe organ building trade since college graduation and currently works for Hupalo & Repasky Pipe Organ Builders of San Leandro.

   Music making endeavors have chiefly been as a church organist, having had positions at St. Pius X, Selinsgrove, PA, St. Boniface, Williamsport, PA, Congregational Church, Deerfield, NH, St. Barnabas Church, Eagle Rock, CA, St Leo The Great Roman Catholic Church, Oakland, CA and is currently Music Director and Organist at St. John Episcopal, Aptos, CA.

Kittens Galore

It's a family of beautiful kittens and their mama in need of very good homes.  We found Mama Cat living under our deck some months back (late Feb/early march).  She turned out to be pregnant and we've been taking care of her and her fabulous kittens since then ...

Problem is that we can't keep them!  So we are now looking to find excellent, caring homes for these lovely creatures.  They have just turned 6 weeks and could probably go to new homes any time.
