June 4th is the first Saturday of the month and that means that the organ in the Sea Bright Library/United Methodist Church will once again be making beautiful music, thanks to the efforts of Councilman Charlie Rooney.
When Rooney was working with the Sea Bright United Methodist Church to have them host the borough’s library after Hurricane Sandy, he was struck with the beauty of the chapel and especially the pipe organ that majestically rises behind the altar.
Rooney learned that an organ’s pipes will deteriorate if they are not played, and the church’s organ wasn’t being used much. To preserve organ and enhance the community, Rooney arranges for an organist to play for an hour on the first Saturday of every month.
This month George Murphy will be playing the organ and Reanna Runge will be singing.
The public from Sea Bright and beyond is welcome to attend. The library opens at 9 a.m. Refreshments provided by Caputo’s Bakery, Richard’s Deli and Strokers Deli will be served at 10:30 and the recital will begin and 11 a.m.
