Church bells to ring

Tri-County Vanguard - - NEWS - THEVANGUARD.CA

The Wedge­port Le­gion Branch 155 has in­vited the nine churches in its catch­ment area to ring their bells si­mul­ta­ne­ously 100 times at 5-sec­ond in­ter­vals on Remembrance Day on Sun­day, Nov. 11 at sun­set – more pre­cisely be­gin­ning at 5:02 pm.

Of the nine churches, the Quinan church bell does not work. The Comeau’s Hill-Lit­tle River Har­bour church is closed. How­ever, the bell will be brought at the war me­mo­rial in front and rung 100 times. Church bells in Mel­bourne, Wedge­port, Pleas­ant Lake (to be con­firmed at our press dead­line), Tus­ket, SAR, Ami­rault’s Hill and Surette’s Island will ring.

Church bells rang 100 years ago to cel­e­brate the end of World War One and the Armistice.

In 1945 Les­lie Muise was a young lad liv­ing not far from Sainte-Anne Church. He heard the church bell ring. He went to find out why. He was told it was to an­nounce and cel­e­brate the end of WW 2.
