The organ, on display in the window of the former McDonald’s store at 192 W. First St., is the object of a raffle now being conducted by the OOT.

Lowrey Holiday Organs are very popular electronic home organs with a variety of sounds and rhythms that appeal to all musical tastes.

They offer outstanding opportunities to both young and older musicians just learning, or with much experience.  They also are beautiful pieces of furniture.

Raffle tickets are on sale for $10 each or three tickets for $25.

They can be purchased from OOT board members and at farmers’ markets on Thursdays or they can be ordered by calling Martha and Terry Hammill at 342-3074.

The drawing for the organ will take place at the OOT chicken barbecue being held at the Oswego Elks Club, 132 W. Bridge St., on Sept. 25.
