Rotary Bell Ringing for the Salvation Army 2017

This year, 2017, we ring at Wal-mart at New Hope Commons11 – 8, Tues, Dec. 12 — Sat, Dec. 16.  The shifts are one hour in length, but you are encouraged to sign up for two hours if possible.   Also, we like to have two Rotary members for every shift.

The bell ringing raises money for very good cause but it also has another benefit that many members have discovered over the years.  It’s a great way to get to know another Rotarian.  If you are a new member, just pick a date and time on an “empty” day.  You’ll probably then get a partner that you don’t know well. Then as slots start filling up pick another hour with someone you don’t know but might like to get to know.

Don’t be put off by the picture of Rotarians Meg Solera and Vince Simonetti.  You don’t have to sing or play the Sousaphone. These guys are just natural performers and love to do it. Vince was one of he founders of the Durham Symphony.

All you have to do is ring the bell and wish the givers a Merry Christmas. You will also be surprised at where the generosity comes from.  It can be a cold day but it will warm your heart.
