  • Ben’s Bells Newtown Evening Workshop At NUMC

    Ben’s Bells Newtown will conduct a bell making workshop on Thursday, May 30, from 6 to 8 pm. The workshop will be at Newtown United Methodist Church, 92 Church Hill Road in Sandy Hook. Nationally renowned, Ben’s Bells are brightly colored ceramic works of art that are randomly hung in public places that bear a tag instructing the person who finds the bell to take it home and to remember to be kind. The bell-making process is a community activity because not one person will ever start and finish their very own Ben’s Bell. The parts of the bell that will be made during the May 30 workshop will eventually be turned into a complete Ben’s Bell and distributed in Newtown and surrounding communities to fulfill their purpose of spreading kindness, one interaction at a time.
