30th Anniversary Employee Dinner

To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Dobson Pipe Organ Builders, Lynn Dobson invited current and former employees to a dinner on Saturday 27 March 2004 at Lake City's Carnegie Café. We were pleased that Dobson alumni traveled from as far as Baltimore to attend this event.

The evening started with a reception in the shop, then moved across the street to the Carnegie Café.
