The St. Francis Ringers (Bell Choir)
is in need of a few more players. The ringing technics are easy to learn, and while it is helpful to be able to read music, it is not completely necessary. If you can count to four, you already know everything that you need to know to join in. If you are interested, please contact Jon Holland, Director of Music.
