July 2020 Ringing News
Memorable Ringing Experiences
Compiled by Patty Highland, Chair
In this time of pandemic quarantine, and scaled back ringing experiences, some Area 9 board members want to share some of our favorite or most memorable ringing experiences. We hope these remembrances will help you think back through your own years of ringing, remembering YOUR favorite, sweet, or entertaining ringing moments, too!

Chime Loan Program
Area 9 has 2 sets of chimes to loan to organizations each school year. One set has been loaned designated for a loan during the 2020-2021 school year, but the second set is still available.
The deadline for applying is July 31. However, in these irregular and changing times, we realize that music directors/teachers may not yet know if they will be teaching in person and able to use a set of chimes. If there are no applicants by July 31, we will continue to leave the application process open for later applicants. Our desire is to see the chimes used, if there is a need and a place for them this school year.
If you are interested in applying for the chime loan, and want to find out availability, email email@example.com
