November 5, 2016 Bell Ringing at Lamb’s Garden Home Market

On November 5, 2016, we held another bell ringing at Lamb’s Garden Home Market (Thriftway). Many people had fun ringing the historic bell in the clock tower.  This bell was first installed in the old Community Church at the corner of (now) 71st and Garden Home Road in 1918.  The bell then moved up to the new United Methodist Church built on 81st and opened in 1961 and closed in 1994.  The bell plaque is beautifully displayed and installed in the entry of the store, the framed display done by Frank Wiggins, recently retired from the liquor store.  The bell plaque was done by Colin Lamb and Elaine Shreve.  The Lyle Tate plaque was done by the GH Methodist Church.  Janice Logan chaired this event, assisted by Board members of the Garden Home History Project.  People also enjoyed the historic photo displays.
