Hallelujah Handbells: Handbell Choir


The Hallelujah Handbell Choir performed on Sunday the 14th with 11 members ringing. The choir was self directed as we are still in need of a director. It was awesome to ring again

The song, “In The Garden” was played in honor of Joyce Kallestad’s 92nd birthday. Her daughter, Cindy, had given us the music to be played in May of 2020. We were unable to play this song for her 90th birthday because of Covid but were delighted to finally play it 2 years later

The 11 ringers are: Back Row L to R LuAnn Henrichs, Jack Schubert, Judy Kirchoff, Hal Kirchoff
Left side to Front Row: Nancy Heise, Ardelle Patrick, Ginny Larsen, Dee Dee Frahm, Jan Nordell, Sandy Twigg and Judi Burson
