Armistice Centennial Bell Ringing

The Centennial anniversary of the World War I Armistice will be marked by the ringing of church bells across Massachusetts.

Mattapoisett Congregational Church, UCC, invites the community to gather on the church lawn at 11:00 am this Sunday, November 11, as the church bell is tolled. This the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, exactly 100 years after the ending of WWI.

The bell will be tolled by Roxanne Bungert, president of the Mattapoisett Women’s Club, which launched the project last year. The “Veteran’s Day Bells of Remembrance” project is to remember and honor veterans and to promote peace.
