(back) Subject: Positiv Organ Needed (X-Posted) From: "W. Scarboro" <scarboro@digital.net> Date: Tue, 5 Jan 1999 21:15:13 -0500     Dear Fellow List Members,   Does anyone know of any church or other group/person in the Central Florida area that has a positiv organ they would be willing to lend out? I am helping my college choral director find a 3 or 4 stop portable positiv organ that we might borrow for a performance. We would be willing to rent it if necessary but, would prefer to borrow it. If anyone has information please send me a message. A timely response is appreciated.
