Bells of Peace – Country Wide Event

November 11 @ 11:00 am

Free
What: Bells of Peace is a collaborative program, whereby American citizens and organizations, across the entire country, are invited to toll bells in their communities twenty-one times.
When: Sunday, November 11, 2018, at 11:00 a.m. local time.
Where: Bells will be tolled in communities across the nation, in places of worship, schools, town halls, public carillons, and cemeteries. Bells will toll in the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. at an interfaith service to mark the centennial of the Armistice that brought an end to hostilities, in what Americans fervently hoped had been “The War to End All Wars.”
Why: This nationwide program is designed to honor those American men and women who served one hundred years ago, during World War One. The war ended by an armistice agreement between the warring countries at 11 a.m. on November 11th, 1918.
