Thank you to all our wonderful donors for supporting Bells of the Lakes on last year’s Give to the Max Day.  Bells of the Lakes continues to have a positive impact in the region (and across the country!) through the group’s educational events, and commitment to musical excellence through the medium of handbells.  Check out our Give to the Max page at the link above to learn more about our current projects, and to find out how you can be part of our mission.

Every gift makes a tremendous difference, and each contribution received during Give to the Max Day gives us a chance to receive one of many cash awards that are offered as incentive prizes on Give to the Max Day.

Thank you for your continued support of Bells of the Lakes!
