We are very pleased to update you on the status of the fundraising for the refurbishment of the handbells that was done this past summer and for the new bell cases.
The total cost for the refurbishment and the cases was $ 8,242.31. We had raised a total of $5,250.87 by the end of this past summer and added a further $1,851.42 this fall from the proceeds of the Christmas Bell Concert, honoraria we received by playing at various places in the community and from individual donations.
We still need to raise approximately $1,150 and are very encouraged that the end is in sight. It is because of you and your support that we have been able to raise such a large amount in such a short time.
We are very grateful for your on-going support for the bell program at KUC. (Yes, we’re still collecting bottles for bells at the various General Grants.)
