Bell Ringers Have Best Year In Years

Roger Gillming, director of the local Salvation Army, said he was “very pleased” with how well the area did with the Christmas bell ringing campaign.

This year was much better than the past few years. Gillming said they collected about $2,800 in the weekends prior to Christmas. Six different area churches provided the bell ringers.

Gillming thought the pleasant weather before Christmas helped with donations.

In addition to the local individuals who put money in the Salvation Army pot, the Bushnell Lions Club and the Kimball Ministerial Association donated money.
