After several months, the Wardens and Father Lane thought it was time for an update on the Change-Ringing Bell Project.
In review, the Church was given eight bells for Change-Ringing to be installed in our tower. We have raised significant sums from members of the congregation for their installation, and before beginning the installation and completing the fund-raising, we have been seeking additional expertise on the structural building requirements specific to the dynamics of Change-Ringing. Our Director of Music, Joseph Kucharski, has secured this expertise, and we are working with local engineering consultants and an expert in the United Kingdom who will be in the area in June. The Vestry will review their proposal over the next month and their work should be completed over the next two-three months. The report we receive will give us confidence in the specific capacity of our tower and the tasks to be completed for an installation.
In the meantime, you may want to know more about Change-Ringing. Here is a good resource:
Please let the Wardens or Joseph or Peter Larson know of any questions or comments. Thank you!
