Planning has started in lining up volunteers to ring bells at businesses this upcoming holiday season. Pastor Jim Cluney says residents of the community have already started to talk about ringing the bells. He says they have sent out a challenge to service groups and church groups to see who can raise the most funds.
Pastor Cluney says bells were rung at Wal-Mart and Fareway last year and they hope to add Hy-Vee and Orcheln to the list this year. He adds they have a goal of raising $15,000 this year with all of the funds staying in Washington.
If you would like more information or if you want to volunteer, contact Pastor Jim Cluney at 653-1735 or Deb McCreedy at 461-6783.
