If you answered “yes” to any of the above, you belong at Bell Jam. This free mini workshop includes lots of hands-on ringing time, a brunch social (food provided), and the chance to connect with other ringers in the Northern NV community. Admission is free, but please RSVP to the event so that we can ensure we have enough bells and food for everyone.
