The comfort that continues is that the Mahanay Bell Tower will continue to chime every quarter hour, ring the bells at each hour, and several songs will play right after the hour. With the digital system, the bells can continue to play. Bill Monroe continues to volunteer to select songs throughout the year and many times he picks the perfect song for the situation. The bells playing can be that comfortable feeling of being at home in Jefferson. The memories of family and friends can be held dearly through a certain song being played.
We would have opened the Mahanay Bell Tower to visitors on the weekends during May but will remain closed. The Bell Tower Community Foundation Board along with the Board of Supervisors will make sure that whenever it is safe to have visitors to the Tower, it will be publicized.
So for now, enjoy the bells playing each day.
