After more than ten years of ringing, our bells were getting a little dusty inside and out. In preparation for our winter season, some of us took a Saturday and polished all of the bells inside and out. The amount of grime that came off was astounding, and now they look like they just came from the factory.
Special Thanks to Dan Moore, who came and helped by disassembling and reassembling every bell so we could polish the insides properly. Keeping track of which handle goes with which bell is not a task for which I would quickly volunteer.
