Wesley Bell Ringers on Tour!

The Wesley Bell Ringers will leave on their summer tour on June 12, 2008, visiting 11 states and performing 14 times. Twenty five teenagers, chaperones, directors and ten octaves of bells will load on a bus to head from Salt Lake City to the Eastern seaboard.

The hosting churches will provide meals, a comfortable bed and an opportunity to meet new friends across the country.

The Bell Ringers have supported the tour through various fundraising projects, squeezed in between twice-weekly rehearsals, numerous local performances and a myriad of high school activities. Some of the fundraisers include:

  • Two huge rummage sales which raised some $20,000
  • Rent-A-Ringer (kids hired themselves out to do odd jobs)
  • A Valentine's dance and dinner
  • Pancake breakfasts
  • Christmas gift wrap sales
The Wesley Bell Ringers are directed by Mr. Terry Waite. He played in the choir from 1967-1970 and has directed bell and vocal choirs for over 25 years.
