Convent bell to­wer makes the move

Tribune Express - - COLLECTIVITÉ • COMMUNITY -

A crane truck from Je­cad Crane Ser­vice Inc., sets up be­side the old St. An­drews Pres­by­te­rian Church site in L’Ori­gnal to await the ar­ri­val of the sal­vage bell to­wer from the Sis­ters of Ste-Ma­rie Convent in Vank­leek Hill. Be­fore wor­kers on the “lift” crew can move the old convent bell to­wer, they first have to re-check the in­ter­ior braces and as­semble a num­ber of hea­vy pal­let beams, Jen­ga-style, to pro­vide a strong and stur­dy rest site for the im­mense or­na­men­tal buil­ding piece.
