Marlin Handbell Ringers

URL: Marlin Handbells

When handbells arrived in October, 1978, a call went out to recruit ringers. All who were interested were invited to ring. The choir evolved into a group of fourteen enthusiasts, all local folk, all amateur musicians. It included two painters, a potter, a writer, a professional photographer, a nurse, a computer programmer, a quilter, an airline pilot and two ski instructors.

Through the years, ringers have come and gone, and the list of former ringers numbers well into the 50s. Two of the original ringers are still with the group which currently is composed of 11 ringers.
