Special request. Our Carillonneur Emeritus, James (Bud) Slater, died on Sunday, February 17. He served as our carillonneur for 35 years. His family has asked that gifts in his memory be designated to Our Third Century Campaign and specifically for the carillon. Repairs and restoration that Bud had fervently desired for years are now in the final planning stages and should begin this summer.
