Welcome Back!!
Tom Jeffers

As we were preparing to print this issue of Vibrations, the handbell community experienced a tremendous loss, as Dr. Donald E. Allured passed away on February 28th. His dedication to the art of handbell ringing and his desire for perfection are well known. In fact, he was known to say, “Ringing the right note at the right time is only the beginning.” With these words he touched many directors and ringers. The American Guild of English Handbell Ringers website has an excellent tribute to this truly great man:

Here at Jeffers, we are working on a new series of handbell advocacy articles called “Closet to Concert”. These articles focus on stories from choirs that have started from the ground up or have restarted after a long time away. The goal is to help those that are just beginning or are attempting to restart a handbell program. So if you have a story to tell and want to help others, please let Krista know. You can contact her via email at

Krista also helps us to keep up on the happenings on the internet. Among other duties is taking care of and posting to our Facebook and Twitter pages. She would like to invite everyone to come by and become a “fan”. Let yourself be heard and join us in sharing with others.
