The Wesley Bell Ringers had an incredible night in Duxbury MA. It was tough to leave such a welcoming community, but on the road it was again....
Have you ever had a chance to see Plymouth Rock? The 2019 Wesley Bell Ringers did today. Plymouth MA is an impressive beach front community rich in history. Plymouth Rock, well considering it was in 1600 that it was discovered, it isn't surprising that it is smaller in size than one might think.
|There has to be at least ONE group photo a day during bell tour.|

The choir had a quick lunch in Rhode Island to say that they had indeed spent time in Rhode Island & then it was off to YALE! Thanks to Assistant Director, The Wesley Bell Ringers participated in a private tour & hands on time at the Yale Harkness bell Carillon. A once in a lifetime (or tour time) chance to see some really amazing bells. For you bell enthusiasts, here are the facts:

|Lewis & Theo....only 200 more stairs to go!|

The short trip to Madison CT did not provide the opportunity for a "bus nap" of which we have all begun to look forward to; however, it was nice to be able to see so much of these amazing New England states today!
First Congregational Church in Madison CT was constructed in 1707, this incredible church was yet another experience for The Wesley Bell Ringers to share their program so far east from Salt Lake City.
|This photo doesn't even come close to reflecting the size of First Congregational Church in Madison CT|
|Fitting a quick practice in tonight.|
The choir & chaperone team are having an extraordinary trip. Homesick, yes. Missing friends, family, & pets back home, absolutely, but are loving every minute! Thanks to everyone who has supported this group so far & throughout the year. We appreciate you all!
