HALIFAX UNITED METHODIST CHURCH BELL DEDICATION - Members of the Halifax UMC dedicated their church‚s bell (cast in the early 1800‚s) and its newly installed clapper on April 18. Left, Douglas W. Powell, church historian, explains the history and mystery of the church bell. When his in-laws, Sam and Helena Cox, joined the church in 1999, they became fascinated with the bell and its then poor tone, and Mr. Cox began a tradition of leading the children up to the balcony to ring it each Sunday. Upon the death of Mrs. Cox in January 2008, memorial gifts were placed in a fund to "fix" whatever was wrong with the bell. Above is Mr. Sam surrounded by his great-grandchildren, and other children of the church, ringing the newly refurbished church bell.
