Something special will take place this Sunday night in Weyburn.
At sunset, which will be at 5:18 p.m. on Remembrance Day, November 11, the Bells of Peace will ring all throughout the city.
“In 1918, the bells rang to celebrate the end of the First World War, at the setting of the sun on November 11,” explained Royal Canadian Legion Branch 47 Manager Connie Nightingale. “So this year, we are marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One with Bells of Peace.”
She said the Weyburn Legion is partnering with All Saints Anglican Church, St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, and Knox Presbyterian Church to ring the bells.
Weyburn residents need to be aware that it could be loud, and it will certainly last a while.
“Hopefully it does get out there," she added. "Because our community might be wondering why all the bells are ringing for approximately 30 minutes throughout the city."
She said the information is available at the Weyburn Legion Facebook page.
The jubilance is taking place all across Canada. Read more HERE.
