Hello friends,

What an exciting time for handbell ringing and for Area 5! In the weeks and months ahead, there are numerous opportunities for you to brush up on your skills, meet and socialize with other ringers and directors, and just generally spend time building community with others out there in the handbell world.

Our Great Rep Ring events began this past weekend with a well-attended workshop in Grand Rapids. There are still spots available for the upcoming GRR events in Fort Wayne, Columbus, and Cleveland. I encourage you to register now. Spots are filling up fast!

Our Concert and Events Calendar has a few other events this summer and we’ll continue adding events as we receive them. Want to have your event shared by Area 5? Reach out to us with the details!

Finally, we are all looking forward to hosting Fred Gramann in Columbus next spring as he leads our next Area 5 Spring Ring! Registration opens soon. Stay tuned!

Want to stay in the know? Be sure to follow us on social media (Facebook and Instagram) and sign up for our newsletter if you haven’t already done so. I hope to see you around soon! Have a great summer.
