100 years since war’s end mer­its 100 rings of bells

The Daily Courier - - OKANAGAN -

The bells at Mis­sion Hill win­ery in West Kelowna will ring 100 times on Sun­day to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War. The bell ring­ing will be­gin at sun­set, 4:19 p.m. The event is part of the na­tional Royal Cana­dian Le­gion’s Bells of Peace ini­tia­tive to mark the mo­ment 100 years ago when church bells across the coun­try rang out to let Cana­di­ans know an ar­mistice had been signed and the war was over.

As the sun goes down on Re­mem­brance Day, each par­tic­i­pat­ing le­gion branch will ring a bell(s) 100 times to hon­our First World War vet­er­ans.
