From the Bell Choir Director, Lynne Walters…The handbell choir of Living Lord Lutheran Church is grateful for the support the congregation has given us through the years, but now we need your help! The bells were purchased in 1990, which makes them 30 years old. The original bells and additional bells were donated through memorial funds and donations. Handbells are supposed to be refurbished every 8 years, but ours have never been refurbished. Because of this, our ringers are having constant reoccurring problems with the bells not ringing smoothly and reliably, and parts needing to be replaced. It is now necessary for our handbells to be refurbished. Therefore, we would like to send the handbells to Schulmerich this summer to be refurbished. A paper with the description of what is involved in the refurbishment is posted on the narthex bulletin board. The price would be $2,200.00 (for our 28 bells) plus $360.00 for shipping. Because of the age and condition of the bells, we are anticipating that extra parts will be needed. Though we won’t know for sure until the bells are taken apart, we are estimating the total cost to be approximately $3,000.00. Please consider donating to the handbell refurbishment fund. We will ask the Fuchs Fund to cover any amount not raised by the congregation. Remember to specify “handbells” in the memo portion of your check. There are also special donation envelopes located on the bulletin board in the narthex. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you for your consideration of this project.
