2020 Officers

In accordance with the by-laws, all current officers of the NAGCR have been re-elected as there were no other nominations received by the deadline. Additionally, Chris Haller is now our 4th Central Council representative as I received no other nominations for these positions. Chris succeeds Alan Ellis who I thank for all his years of service in this...

Robert Mead, Burlington, NJ

I recently learned of the death of Robert (Bob) Mead. Sadly, he passed away in May, but it was after the AGM when I found out. Bob along with Barbara Knight were instrumental in getting the bells at St Mary's ringing again. Unfortunately, too many obstacles were in their path to make this a viable ring once again.

David Wilcox has found a few errors in the peal numbering (thanks). I'll update the files soon, and if you have a chance to check this against your own records please do so.

At Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church in Houston, on the Sunday (8/25), we rang rounds for the four minutes (at or about 2 pm cdt). Note, for all who rang for this event, please consider reporting this event on Bellboard and link it to the diary entry for the anniversary of this historical event. If you have any questions, let me know. Allen Nunley

Response to 'Ringing marking the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in the Americas'

Firing four times at the Church of the Advent Boston, with a band made of locals and AGM visitors. Four minutes of tolling the tenor at Old North. I did have someone who came to listen at Old North. The commemoration was mentioned by an educator at the Faneuil Hall historic site. One of the people there walked over to Old North, told the person at the door that he was there for the bellringing ceremony, and she let him up to the ringing room. I was startled, but let him stay, and he sat quietly while I tolled. Not just Episcopal towers in Boston - there was ringing of the bell at the Old South Meeting house and the chime at Arlington Street Church UU, and possibly others. Laura Dickerson
