Bell Choir Director
In May of 2018, we welcomed Janet Ward as our Bell Choir Director.
Janet moved to the Orono area 13 years ago and heard about a bell choir in Bowmanville. She decided to give it a try and was hooked. She enjoyed the fellowship with the choir and learning about a new instrument. Janet looks forward to making a joyful noise with the dedicated and committed Bells of Blessing Choir.
