PREVIOUSLY OWNED

Last year we held a "Used Instrument Sale”
which was very successful. Would you be
interested in having such a sale again this
year, and do you have one or more instruments
you would like to bring to be sold? If enough
people are interested, we will do this again,
and if not, then we won't. Let us know!
